Hot Collar Gloss Perdigon

10,000 videos!

This simple little perdigon nymph is great for smaller streams and rivers. The slotted bead aids the fly in riding hook point up and thus avoiding lots of potential snags while bouncing along the river bottom.

I'm tying a few of these for my spring box (they work well through the whole season)and will be tying them in hot orange, red, pink, blue and purple collar versions.

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.
