The Prince Nymph

The Prince Nymph is one of those flies that just works! Some say it is a stonefly nymph, others say it is an attractor. I think that it is both. The dark body looks a lot like a stonefly and it also works very well on freestone rivers, where stoneflies are common. The prince nymph is by no means easy to tie. It does take a fair bit of practice to master it and I must admit, I am still practicing! The Prince Nymph can be tied is size #08-18. My personal favorite is a #16. You can add a gold bead if you like as well. The Prince Nymph was invented many years ago, well before my time. It continues to be a favorite among fly fisherman to this day. To the right is a small stonefly nymph. This is most likely what the trout take the Prince Nymph for, but you be the judge!
