Cahill Frenchie Jig Nymph

The Cahill Frenchie is a more representational jig nymph, walking that line between emerger and Euro nymph. Will Light Cahill mayflies be emerging on the stream bottom, where this is fished? Typically not, but the noticeable contrast will catch their attention, leading them to a pattern that consists of "food colors" they've grown accustomed to eating during hatch season. TYING TIP: Have some tied with brass beads, or none at all, and fish those as droppers or in the film, especially when fish are feeding closer to the surface.

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.
