Frenchie - On a normal hook

The Frenchie is commonly tied on a jig hook, and usually fished using the euro nymphing style. However the same fly can be tied on a traditional nymph hook and is also quite effective fished under an indicator as well. In fact, I had some great luck with this fly on my last trip to the Animas.
I tie these small for my local rivers, but you can tie them much larger if you want.

The materials I used...
Hook: TMC 3761 on size 16
Thread: Veevus 10/0 in Red
Bead: 2.8mm Gold Tungsten Bead
Weight: .010 lead wire
Tail/body: Pheasant Tail Fibers
Ribbing: UTC Small Gold Wire
Collar: UV Shrimp Pink Ice Dub
Glue: Hard as Hull Head Cement

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.
