Beadhead Prince Nymph

Beadhead Prince Nymph Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Beadhead Prince Nymph is one of my all time favorite flies!!  It seems to catch trout everywhere I go.  In this video, I tied a weighted beadhead version of the classic Prince Nymph.  This version makes a great lead fly and the added weight really helps the fly get down in fast water.  I prefer to tie my Prince Nymphs with red thread, but black thread also works just fine.  I also tie this Prince with Brown Hackle, but Partridge is another one of my favorite materials to use on this fly.  Both work just fine.  A MUST have fly in any fly box.  Both professionals and beginners swear by the Prince.  When you don’t know what to use in trout country….just tie on a Prince!!
