Beadhead Prince Nymph Video Fly Tying Instructions

The Beadhead Prince Nymph is an all time favorite fly!! It seems to catch trout everywhere. In this video, James from InTheRifle ties a weighted beadhead version of the classic Prince Nymph. This version makes a great lead fly and the added weight really helps the fly get down in fast water. I prefer to tie my Prince Nymphs with red thread, but black thread also works. James also ties this Prince with Brown Hackle, but Partridge is another one of his favorite materials to use on this fly. Both work just fine. A MUST have fly in any fly box. Both professionals and beginners swear by the Prince. When you don’t know what to use in trout country….just tie on a Prince!!

Pink Pookie Video Fly Tying Instructions

The Pink Pookie is a hopper pattern developed by Dean Reiner in Montana. The Pink Pookie imitates a grasshopper and the fish go crazy for it! The Pink body is much different than many other hopper patterns out there, but don’t be fooled by the bright appearance, this pattern really works!! It is usually tied in sizes #06 and #08, but larger and smaller versions can be tied. The best color is…of course…Pink. But many other anglers tie them in Tan, Yellow and Olive. A great terrestrial pattern to have in your summer Montana Hopper box!! Happy fly tying!
