Iron Lotus (PMD)

Another super effective Lance Egan fly pattern that catches fish like crazy!

PMD nymphs become very active in rivers and streams during most of the summer and early fall. Trout fill themselves on these critters day after day which makes the PMD Iron Lotus nymph such a valuable nymph fly pattern. A few years back Lance told me of the unique design of this fly which includes its thread body covered in a hard clear finish. This helps the fly sink at a quicker rate because of its streamline design and lack of appendages. It is tied with lead wire and a tungsten bead which also helps the sink rate and its ability to stay down in the water column once it gets there. That is partially why it is one of the most effective Czech Nymphing flies. Another advantage is the durability of this fly as it holds up very well to the pointed teeth of trout. I have quickly become a huge fan of this fly since it continues to catch fish after fish.

The BWO variation is also deadly and fairly simple to tie as well.

Since you got this far …

… 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.
