May Fly of the Month: The Frenchie Nymph

According to Frank, this was the go to nymph while fishing the rivers and streams in North Carolina. The Frenchie nymph is really little more than a Czech-nymphing variation on the classic Beadhead Pheasant Tail Nymph we’ve all got in our boxes. The use of Coq de Leon for the tail and the garish thorax set the Frenchie apart from its forbear, making it a bit more garish and exotic. To see the tying video, please visit:
