In this video, Greg ties a simple but very effective perdigon fly in black & red.
A small fly pattern designed to drop quickly, this fly can be tied in different colors and sizes to mimic just about any mayfly out there as well as midges.
Greg uses them primarily as a tag fly on an indicator setup or euro nymphing rod and ties them in sizes 16-20. Use them as a dropper fly off a dry fly too.
Last summer he had a client from the Perdigon area of Spain who tied his own and knocked it out of the park fishing the Tuolumne River.
A great fly pattern for trout and a great pattern for the beginning fly-tier. Give them a try!
