The Beadhead Czech Catnip
While exploring Czech, European, contact, tight line nymphing, or whatever you want to call it, this pattern comes up time and time again, and for good reason. It works great! It features a heavy tungsten bead and added lead wire to help you get down to where the fish are holding. For that reason it fits well in a tight line nymphing box. Using the Hareline Midge Cactus Chenille this pattern is easy enough to whip out a dozen in no time. Fish it deep and find those picky trout
