Umpqua's Egan's Frenchie Chironomid is a highly effective fly pattern that has been refined by experienced angler Lance Egan. Developed as a variation of the popular competition fly, the Frenchie, Egan's Frenchie is tied with Coq de Leon for the tail, which enhances sheen, speckling and durability, and dyed dun pheasant tail for the body. The addition of Hareline's shrimp pink ice dubbing with a red thread collar creates a hot spot that proves irresistible to fish.
The color combination used in this fly has been extensively tested and has been proven successful in various fishing conditions, including the River Alva in Portugal where Lance Egan won a river session using the Frenchie and Bionic Ant in a dry dropper rig.
Whether you're a seasoned angler or a beginner, Umpqua's Egan's Frenchie Chironomid is a must-have fly pattern that will improve your catch rate.
