Alright! Let's see something every Smokies fisherman should have in their box. Your favorite Prince Nymph or variation on that pattern... This fly is great for matching the Isonychias and is a good generic attractor nymph as well.

Been busy with lawn, garden, work, vacation, and various other summer time activities. :smile: I've been meaning to post more. I'll try when i can to get something up. It always helps when I have something already tied up in the box.:smile: This one is a work in progress, I'll pay more attention to the body taper on the next batch.

Flyman, that's a great looking pattern. I've been wanting to try some hotwire patterns and have a question: do you wind both colors of wire simultaneously? Any tips on keeping the wraps consistent would be great...
