In this video, Greg ties a guide’s variation of a Frenchie nymph fly pattern.
Imitating a mayfly nymph this nymph has caught lots of redsides on the McKenzie and Willamette rivers locally, but can be used anywhere trout live.
Incorporate different colors of pheasant tail fibers, beads, thread and the limitations are endless. So get creative and let us know how they work for you.
