Product Description

“Dad Bods are hot right now!” While the Dad jokes almost write themselves on the river with this pattern, this double beadhead nymph pattern is no laughing matter when it comes to catching trout! This fly is a little scruffy up top, sporting a 5 o’clock shadow of CDC feathers, a large bead belly to help it sink fast, skinny rubber legs, and pair of white biot tails. Perfect for either a traditional nymphing or euro rig, this fly is about to become one of your go-to patterns!

  1. Great All Around Pattern

    Posted by Zach on 19th Oct 2020

    Just got back from a trip from Montana and put these to use. Fish on a variety of rivers (Maddison, Gallatin, Ruby, and Big Hole) all ate this without fear. Great fly for your box.
