Details

The Bead Head Prince Nymph is one of the most successful attractor nymphs in the history of fly fishing. While it most closely mimics stoneflies, trout will eat it even when natural stones aren't present due to its general buggy look. Can be fished in a truly wide range of sizes.

 

All Umpqua flies are tied on Tiemco Hooks. These top quality Japanese hooks are tempered and forged for strength and chemically sharpened.

Hard to go wrong with a BH prince, especially in the spring time. I really like how these Umpqua flies hold up, especially after bouncing along the bottom trip after trip.
