This is my variation of a Rainbow Warror fly. I have no idea why this fly works. It does not look like anything in nature. It absolutely kills for trout everywhere in all conditions; even in winter. I suspect it’s because it’s an attractor nymph and consequently can be seen well in all flow rates and water types. It pretty much works everywhere all the time.
The “Huck-bow Warrior is my goto fly for non clear water conditions. It fishes well all year long in many conditions because it is an attractor. Along with the Huck Midge cripple this is a great winter fly. I recommend size 16.
The story behind this fly goes back about a decade. and if you write me an email I’ll tell ya’ the story…
