Lunar Warrior

The Lunar Warrior was inspired by the famous Rainbow Warrior designed by Lance Egan. This version is tied on a Firehole 516 jig hook, but could also be tied on a standard nymph hook as well. My pattern has evolved a couple of times since it’s inception, I’ve added a black wire for better segmentation from the original silver. I also swapped out the original silver ice dubbing collar for pearly UV ice dubbing. It is a simple fly to tie and tied on the jig hook it will bounce down the river bottom with the hook riding up, more easily avoiding snags. In deeper waters, the tungsten version and an indicator rig are a good pair.

… I have a small favor to ask.

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.
