Mega Prince Nymph

Mega Prince: A hall of fame trout fly, white goose biots, peacock and rubber legs, this fly has it all going on. We have an ongoing argument at the shop about which fly is better Mega Prince or Possie Bugger. They both fish incredibly well. The Mega Prince can be swung down and across traditional wet fly style. It can also be fished deep under an indicator. It has caught many a steelhead and is a favorite for “half pounders” on the Rogue River. This fly is worthy of it’s own row in your fly box.

    Does this fly work for small trout. I live in Dallas and there is a small creek running through it. I didn’t have much luck last year with fishing. Only small three inchers. The biggest fish I caught was a six inche cutthroat. my friend did catch a ten inche rainbow on a castmaster. Do you have any suggestions on flies and sizes.

    The Mega Prince will work for small trout, we have yet to find a trout that doesn’t like it. Try a size #10.
