BH Prince Nymph Fly Overview
The BH (Bead Head) Prince Nymph, also known as the 'Brown Forked Tail', is a classic and highly effective nymph pattern in fly fishing. It was developed by Doug Prince in the 1930s for fishing the King's River in California. This fly is versatile and known for its effectiveness throughout the year, making it a staple in many anglers' fly boxes.
The Prince Nymph is characterized by its distinct design features. It incorporates a gold bead at the head, which not only adds a unique look but also helps the fly sink quickly, making it effective in various water depths. The fly's body is made from peacock herl, which gives it a natural iridescence. Brown goose biots are used to create a split-tail, which helps in shaping the stonefly profile of the pattern. The addition of white biots at the top of the fly behind the bead forms its wing profile, while the legs are made from Hungarian partridge feathers.
BH Prince Nymph Fly Best Uses
The BH Prince Nymph is particularly effective in moving water and streams with significant stonefly populations. Its design allows it to sink well and present an attractive flash, which can fool trout and other species. The fly's versatile nature makes it suitable for different types of water bodies and conditions, ranging from rivers to lakes.
This fly's combination of flash, movement, and resemblance to natural prey makes it a go-to choice for many anglers, particularly when targeting trout.
