Looking for a fly pattern that is sure to attract even the pickiest of trout? Look no further than Devin Olson's Lite Brite Perdigon Fly. Inspired by a perdigon nymph shown to him by his friend Luis Esteban Hernandez, Devin was initially skeptical but soon became impressed by the catch rates these nymphs were producing.
Tying his own version with krystal flash for the body, Devin quickly realized that his Lite Brite Perdigon sank faster than other patterns, allowing him to fish them in smaller sizes and with less weight. This versatile fly has become a standby for Devin across the globe, with its attractor-based pink, purple, blue, and butano (orange) variations proving to be surprisingly effective in even the toughest of rivers.
The Lite Brite Perdigon Fly strikes the perfect balance between imitation and attraction, making it a reliable choice for any angler. Its flashy body and fast-sinking capabilities make it irresistible to trout, and its small size makes it perfect for imitating a variety of nymphs.
So why wait? Add Devin Olson's Lite Brite Perdigon Fly to your fly box today and get ready to reel in some serious fish!
Note: this fly has a green flash body even though Umpqua refers to the fly as a "Black Perdigon".
