In this video, Greg ties the Frenchie Nymph fly pattern. A simple, effective fly for trout in rivers & streams everywhere.
Tie them in different color patterns using different shades of wire, pheasant tail, and beads. You could use larger beads if fishing faster moving water or deeper pools too.
Use the Frenchie as a terminal fly on European nymphing setups, under an indicator or dry fly.
