For decades the traditional prince nymph has been a staple fly in just about every trout nymphers fly box. The Guide's Prince Nymph, designed by Dave McKenna is a hybrid of the tradition prince nymph and a modern, synthetic, Euro style nymph.
Guide Flies Prince Nymphs Feature:
- UV attracting Semperfli Straggle Legs and Inferno Biots for enhanced visibility and motion at depths and in faster, cloudier water.
- A stealthier black nickel tungsten bead replaces the traditional gold brass bead
- A custom UV Dub collar and UV Red or UV Orange hot spot
- Umpqua Competition barbless curved nymph hooks
Our custom Prince Nymph will represent a wide range of buggy-looking food. This is a go-to fly for searching for trout, anchoring nymph rigs, and just about any time where all else seems to fail!
Meet the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild. They are the primary supplier and designers for Guide Flies and the inspiration to pass on the art of fly tying to this incredibleisland community.
It started by recognizing the natural fly tying talent that existed in the community of Guanaja. The guides and family members of the Fly Fish Guanaja staff had learned the basics of fly tying and made creative flies for technical permit and bonefish that were not easily fooled.
Over the the last three years they have worked hard to perfect their craft. What began as an experiment in the beach front cabana, has turned into one of the greatest small business opportunities for the Island of Guanaja.
The team of fly tyers that make the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild is instructed and led by Dave McKenna. They work daily to make the custom tied flies you can purchase through our website. They are self managed and work with an entrepreneurial approach to their business of fly tying.
Through the challenges of passing hurricanes and the Covid-19 pandemic, they have persevered and worked with pride to make the flies we offer here.
We all thank you sincerely for the support and orders that have helped bring the entire team through the hardest parts of the past year. We are very excited to share our newest flies and designs with you!
