Thread: Perdigons

    Default Perdigons

    I've got a good buddy that is a guide and has been using perdigons quite a bit lately with good success. Wondering if anyone has any go-to perdigon patterns or favorites? Doing a little experimenting on the vise and want to get some different flies in the winter rotation. Also open to new/different winter midge patterns.

    Thanks for any ideas

    I was in the deschutes Angler Flyshop recently and got into a discussion about euro nymphing with the owner. He said, kingfisher blue, coated with uv resin and a bright orange hot spot is a deadly attractor pattern tied on a sz 16 hook with 3.0mm bead. He went on to say almost of these lures will work if presented properly. Then he tried to sign me up for a class. Steelheading has been slow on the Deschutes the last couple years and the insect hatches are also in a down cycle...

    I'm planning to give it a try next month.

    They slay in Spain. Perdigons are a very productive fly over here. When I see Frenchies their fly boxes are full of Perdigons too. You can fish Perdigons slow or fast, deep or shallow with equal results.
