The Global FlyFisher - The Largest and Best Place to go for Online Fly Fishing and Fly Tying
In spirit of Superman being played in theaters right now, we present you with an awesome fly inspired by our superhero. It is definitely an attractor nymph, don't even know what it represents. But, we can assure it catches fish. First saw this on Fly Tyer Magazine and I became sceptical and tied it myself. Sure enough, I was proven wrong. Creator of this fly is Vince Wilcox and he's becoming more and more our favorite tyer. Try it for yourself & you'll be a believer again of Superman!!!!
