Currently one of the most used tied and nymphs, especially in competition circles. An extremely easy tie for an extremely effective pattern for Euro nymphing. Change the hook size, body and collar colour and even tie it on a jig hook, there are so many combinations of this pattern its endless!

One thought on “Frenchie Fly”
Your tying of this frenchie is about as perfect as you can get. You also show the benefits of a true rotary vise quite nicely, which makes me wish I had one. Oh well, someday …
