McKenzie River Frenchie Pattern: Fly Tying Video

Sure, another frenchie variation video. But we wouldn’t be sharing this one if we weren’t excited about it. With an ode to the Europeans that developed these nymphs, we tied this one in a disproportionate bead to hook size. It gets down fast and looks great.

With the pink thread and peacock black ice dub, the contrasting colors seem to attract the fish we’re looking for. We’ve been having a great time fishing this on the McKenzie here in Oregon!
