Peacock Nymph

Tied by Jeff Lauze

The origins of the Peacock Nymph are a little uncertain, some speculate that it is based on a British Columbia pattern, others think it based on the “half-back” nymph. This fly is extremely productive in Saskatchewan lakes and streams. Note: The Peacock Nymph should absolutely be one of the two fly’s in your box.
