The Big Bird PMD Nymph by Bob Streb

This is a great fly tying pattern for our local Colorado streams. It is a quick tie, uses only a few materials and works like a charm all Summer long on the Eagle River, Roaring Fork and Colorado River. These flies fish best from a Sz. 16-20 on a dead drift or a gradual lift. We stock all the materials needed for this fly so give us a call if you’d like to spin up a few of your own!
