Posts Tagged ‘mayfly nymph’
The other day I was in Cabela’s talking to fly tyer Lance Egan (creator of the Rainbow Warrior, Frenchie, Iron Lotus… etc) and we got to talking about the Iron Lotus as a mayfly imitation. I had never fished this pattern of his, but Egan creations always rank high in my book so I tied some up that night. I have been fishing them for a week, and the PMD version of the Iron Lotus has been out fishing my other go-to PMD nymph patterns. It straight up catches fish… video (or tutorial) coming soon!
