Bead Head Prince Nymph
The Prince's Nymph is one of those must have flies. It rates along with Pheasant Tail nymphs, Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear nymphs and Zug Bug as one of the top 10 nymphs that you must have in your fly box. It is the use of the green peacock herl with it's efflorescent qualities that makes it so alluring and successful. This forked tail nymph originated with the brothers Don and Dick Olson of Bemidji, Minnesotas, USA, but it was made popular in Western North America by Doug Prince of Monerey, California from whom it gets it's name .
