Pattern Description
The Rainbow Warrior is the creation from Lance Egan of Utah. This little non-descript bug came on the scene a few years ago and immediatley caused a stir among anglers and fish alike. The Tungsten bead adds the perfect amount of weight to this bug as a dropper in a dry/dropper rig and the rainbow of colors emanating from the pearl body and rainbow dubbing create a fish catching dynamic that is tough to beat. The best part of this fly? It's so simple to tie!!
