Frenchie Jig Nymph Fly Tying Video

In this instructional Fly Tying Video, Tony Torrence demonstrates how to tie the Frenchie Nymph in the jig format. While the Frenchie is just another Pheasant Tail Nymph variation, it has become a popular fly on a lot of Eastern Oregon streams and rivers because it’s so effective. The jig style really shines when fished on a hopper-dropper rig, but also as you main fly in a two fly indicator rig.
