RAINBOW WARRIOR NYMPH-JIG FLIES
The Rainbow Warrior barbless jig comes with a tungsten bead head making this a great option as a dropper below a dry fly or behind your favorite nymph pattern. This version also makes a stellar hopper dropper rig or euro nymphing rig.
In streams or rivers, this pattern can be presented in a number of ways, the most successful being casting upstream like a dry fly and then allowing it to dead drift drag free, keep in contact with your line.
Alternatively, allow the rainbow warrior to sink slowly to the bottom just above the vegetation it often seeks and slowly raises the line on the drift, through the water table to attract attention. This is one of those must-have nymphs in your fly fishing box. Barbless fly fishing hook size 10
