In this video Tim Flagler ties a peacock herl body fish catching nymph designed by National Fly Fishing Champion Lance Egan. Like all of Lance's nymphs, this one sinks like a cannonball so it gets into the trout's "feeding zone" quickly. Its tied with readily available materials, and if you don't have jig hooks and slotted beads, it can be tied on a standard nymph hook with a conventional bead.
If you are in the New England area this weekend - Friday, Saturday and Sunday January 18, 19 & 20 - you may want to shake your winter time fishing blues off by attending the Fly Fishing Show in Marlborough, Massachusetts. My son Hunt will be there tying flies on the show floor with Tim Flagler, along with a bunch of other talented fly tyers. For more information click here: The Fly Fishing Show - Marlborough, MA
Sharpen your hooks.
