Little Red Bead Head Nymph

A Little Red Bead Head is one of the best nymphs for trout everywhere. This little mayfly imitation can be used year round but works best in the Spring and Summer, especally during the PMD Hatch. Similar bead head flies include the Copper John's and Carrot Nymph in sizes #16 - #20. As simple as it looks to tie, this easy nymph pattern will catch fish. Capt. Matt is a fly fishing guide out of Aspen, Colorado. Guided float trips are a sure way to have success in a most beautiful setting. Go to for information and booking.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
