Antonio Rodrigues's Spanish Perdigon Fly is a unique and innovative take on traditional nymph fishing. This fly features a small tungsten bead and bright thread, coated with varnish for a metallic finish. The Perdigon Fly was first developed in Spain around 15 years ago and has since become a staple in the fly fishing world.
The name "Perdigon" was given to the fly by a friend of Rodrigues, Iñigo Urruzuno, who referred to the tungsten bead as a "shotgun pellet." The use of a tungsten bead in the fly allows for faster sinking and more effective nymph fishing.
This pattern is perfect for fishing in tough rivers where the trout often prefer tiny imitative nymphs. The Perdigon Fly is versatile and can be tied in a variety of colors and sizes to match different insect hatches. Whether you're an experienced fly fisherman or a beginner, Antonio Rodrigues's Spanish Perdigon Fly is a must-have for your fly box.
