The BHSHPID Nymph is a fly pattern designed by Central Pennsylvania fly tyer and angler, Richard Tate. His creation, the BHSHPID (Bead Head Soft Hackle Peacock Ice Dubbing) is a fly that developed from the classic Gray-hackle Peacock wet fly. Tate subbed out the peacock herl with peacock colored Ice Dub and added a reverse wrapped copper wire.

You can read more about this fly in the Spring 2018 issue of Flyfishing & Tying Journal pg. 41

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
