This is my variation of a Rainbow Warror fly. I have no idea why this fly works other than “It’s an attractor”. It does not look like anything in nature. It absolutely kills for trout everywhere in all conditions; even in winter. Because it’s an attractor nymph it 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 “go to” fly for non clear water conditions. It fishes well all year long in many conditions. Along with the Huck Midge cripple this is a great winter fly. I recommend size 16.
The “Huck-bow Warrior is one of my must-have flies for the Upper Kern River in the Sierras.
The story behind this fly goes back about a decade. and if you write me an email I’ll tell ya’ the story…
