New Czech Nymphs from Steve Parrott IN STOCK!!!
Finally!!!! After a really long wait (18 months) we have Steve Parrott's new Czech Nymphs in stock!!
We all have our "confidence" flies and according to Steve, these are three patterns he will not leave home without!!! Designed by Steve and tied by Umpqua Feather Merchants on the new Umpqua Competition C300BL Grub/Czech hook, these quality flies will surely find a place in your European Nymphing aresenal as well!!
Featured in Steve's First DVD, Czech Nymphing 101 & Reltated European Methods, this fly is a real killer. Steve incorporated an under and over rib on the main body as well as a Magic Shrimp Foil - Pearl Strip - Lt. Green back foil for added flash. The beauty of this fly is when it is wet. The body will darken and the flash under rib will light up giving the fly an almost transparent look that drives fish nuts.
Perfect for the top (dropper) position on the Czech and Spanish rigs as it is weighted just enough to get into the zone but not dredge the bottom.
Electric Caddis Testimonial: Posted by disheartened Rainbow from South Platte River
''I was just hanging out and spotted this really flashy caddis looking pattern drifting down the river in front of me, then it was like a flash of light from Men in Black or something and I forgot all I had learned during my years refusing all those flies and I ate it!!! Needless to say, it was in fact not real and I was taken away momentarily to a rubber coated something and had my picture taken before I was released back to the water. Fellow trout beware, this looks real but IT IS NOT!!!!! (see mug shot below)
This is another "confidence" fly that Steve will never leave home without. The weighted under body and slim profile get the chartreuse S&D (Search & Destroy) Grub Czech nymph down quickly and can be used on the point (bottom) position in shallower water and as a top (dropper) fly in the deeper stuff. The super durable body and subtle fluorescent pink "hot spot" drives fish crazy. Ideal for rivers with good caddis populations as well as a searching pattern for your favorite river.
Tied on the new Umpqua Competition C300BL Grub/Czech hook, this quick penetrating, super sticky hook will stay sharp and hold with the best of them.
"When I go to a river for the first time or hit a section of my favorite water, I will always have the S&D Grub on my line. This fly has produced more fish than I can count and I would be lost without it!!!" - Steve Parrott
"There is something about a pink fly that continues to amaze me even on some of the toughest waters we have here in Colorado. This fly just works when the going gets tough, especially in stained or off-colored water." - Steve Parrott
The super slim profile and medium weight of the S&D (Search & Destroy) Grub Czech nymph is perfect for your bottom (point) fly or as the top (dropper) fly on a Czech or Spanish Nymphing set-up. It gets down quickly due to its slim profile but not so fast that it constantly hangs on the bottom. The fluorescent pink "hot spot" gives this fly the right amount of "bling" to entice the most discerning fish.
Tied on the new Umpqua C300BL Grub/Czech hook, it penetrates quickly while setting the hook and stays put during the fight!!!
There is a reason these three patterns are Steve's "confidence" patterns and after fishing these a day on the river, we are sure you will feel the same way!!!
