Notes: The Black Nosed Dace, or BND for short, was a creation of Arthur (Art) Flick of Westkill, New York. It was designed to imitate the plentiful baitfish of the same name, Rhinichthys atratulus. For trout, Mr. Flick suggested sizes #4-#10, favouring the smaller sizes later into the season. The pattern found a calling amongst saltwater enthusiast and the fly was adopted into fly boxes destined to hunt striped bass. Numerous variations and styles of the pattern evolved, most notably the Thunder Creek version incepted by Keith Fulsher. For more Black Nosed Dace patterns, please have a look at Global Fly Fisher's BND page.

The GFF money box

… 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.
