The Mega Prince is a great fly developed by Dan Delekta. It’s the perfect high water fly and imitates a buggy stonefly nymph. The Mega Prince is best fished as the lead fly on a nymph rig. This fly has a lot of movement to it. The rubber legs and marabou tail allow for the fly to pulse and move in the water. A great western stonefly nymph imitation and a must have when you visit the west!!
Now let’s see what you can do. #avidmaxflytyers

One thought on “Video: How to Tie the Mega Prince Fly”
The colors in the recipe are not consistent with the picture provided. Having given tying lessons over the past 30 yrs, I’ve found this to be a stumbling block for new tiers.
