How to Tie a Rainbow Warrior

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

The Rainbow Warrior was developed by competitive fly fisherman Lance Egan.   Tim Flagler ties this one on a curved-shank emerger hook, size 16, and with a silver tungsten bead.  The pattern’s shiny head, pearl body and red thread make it hard for trout to resist as a dropper or fished solo.

    Thanks Tim – this is one of our favorite patterns for the Missouri River here in Montana in June and early July.
