Picking up where the Prince Nymph left off, the Psycho Prince brings an extra element of flash to this effective nymph. One of those bugs that you can tie in a ton of different colors, all of which can be effective, the Psycho Prince Nymph is an excellent attractor pattern whether you’re after wild brookies, stocked fish, or some fresh steelhead. Summer, fall, winter, and spring, the Psycho Prince Nymph is a pattern that’s effective every day of the year.
