I tied up a few different versions of prince nymphs last night. I had some pearl core braid (black)that was peacock colored. I was looking for something a little more durable than peacock herl.

I also have some cool chenille that is called glimmer chenille. It is peacock colored. I tied a real webby saddle hackle for the collar. It's almost like a wet fly. I fished this pattern this morning and caught plenty of white suckers on it. I tied it with wire instead of tinsel for more durability. I like it a lot.
