Hot Wire Prince Nymph

The Hot Wire Prince Nymph is an effective pattern, primarily because some of its best characteristics are a combination of those found in the Prince and Copper John nymphs. There are some base characteristics of the Prince Nymph, with the added Ultra Wire giving this pattern weight and color. There are many color combinations that can be used for the body, thus don't be afraid to try some others and see how they work in your area. Feel free to share those combinations in the comments below.

Thanks go out to Allen Fly Fishing for the use of the W501BL nymph and wet fly hook. This is a 1xl hook that is perfect for this application. Check out this hook and more at:

Thanks also go out to Clearwater Hackle for the JV Hen Hackle used in this pattern. There are many colors of the hackle available, thus giving you the opportunity to vary this pattern between light and dark shades. Check out more JV Hen Hackle here:

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.
