Our Rainbow Warrior's are tied for us by Stan (of Gourmet Flies fame) and he has really come up with the goods again this time. These Rainbow Warrior perdigons are ideal for fishing on the faster/deeper runs and riffles (ideal for swollen/coloured rivers). They are tied on a Size 14 straight hook using a quality 3mm bead. We have 3 variations for you to choose from, all with different bead colours.
A perdigon fly is usually a beaded fly tied with thread on a small hook, the thread is then coated with a resin to make a slim (bullet-shaped) profile. It is believed that these flies were originally introduced by the Spanish competition anglers, however, everyone should have them in their fly boxes. Because of their size (being small), they are ideal flies to use on rivers which see lots of anglers, fish are less wary when feeding on smaller insects.
Perdigon nymphs are generally used in the faster stretches of water, due to their slim, smooth profiles, they sink very quickly and can get to the river bed quickly. This allows you longer drifts each time you cast.
