Threaded Veiled Frenchie Bomb

Curtis - February 2022

As if you didn't need another Frenchie variation, we've got you covered: Here's another variation of the Frenchie. This one is a thread Frenchie variation with a change to a tungsten "Bomb" style inverted jig bead. Also, the "veiled" technique for apply a soft-hackle-like buggy effect to the fly is another style I like to fish. I fish this pattern as a dropper from a dry fly when mayfly emergers or spinners are around or when you want to Euro nymph to fish eating emerging mayflies etc.
