Description of the Rainbow Warrior, Tungsten Bead - Fly:
The Pearl Rainbow Warrior Tungsten Bead has become a top selling fly in our retail location and we are proud to offer it here. The thorax of this fly is rainbow dubbing which is a blend of different colors. We feel some of the reasons this fly is so productive is at least one of the colors will stand out in any fishing condition and the abdomen closely matches a midge pupa. The Rainbow Warrior works in almost any water but is hard to beat when fish are feeding on midges. This pattern works well in waters with sow bugs and will also work for a Mysis shrimp. The extra weight of the tungsten head makes this fly sink fast and makes this fly a great choice to trail off of a dry.

Pros: This pattern works very well as a finder fly for the waters I fish in my area(MA/NH). When drifted as a trailing dropper with another slightly larger fly I would usually hookup with the Rainbow Warrior. It also seams to be fairly durable after several hookups and landed fish it still looked good.
Cons: I broke some off and now need to buy a few more.
Other Thoughts: I landed a 18" Rainbow on January 26th with this pattern in a tail water in Western MA

Pros: Very good fly. Caught several fish at Broken Bow Oklahoma this year. Good fly for medium fast water looking for big browns hanging behind rocks. Good color attracted several large rainbows.
