The Rainbow Warrior Nymph 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 different ways. The most successful way, being casting upstream like a dry fly and then allowing it to dead drift drag free, keeping in contact with your line.
Alternatively, allow the Rainbow Warrior to sink slowly to the bottom, but just above the vegetation. Slowly raise the line on the drift and through the water table to attract attention. This is one of those must-have nymphs in your fly fishing box.
