Steelhead Psycho Prince: Nymph Tying Tutorial

In this video, Simon ties a more flashy version of the famous prince nymph. It is tied on a new hook from Ahrex called the FW563 “Short Nymph”. This hook is extremely stout making it a great candidate to tie a small attractor nymph used for nymphing for winter steelhead. It uses some new materials from Hareline; one being their new Synthetic Peacock Chenille. Which offers a more durable and colorful option compared to natural peacock herl. This fly would be great nymph for steelheading when the water is low and clear, and it would be a great half-pounder fly on the Rogue as well. For you Midwesterners doing steelhead fishing in the great lakes tributaries, this fly would be killer. This would make a great trout nymph as well tied on a more tame hook and sized down a bit. Sizes and colors can be substituted to fit your fisheries needs. Tie some up and let us know how you do!
