10 New USA Euro Nymphs for 2022Published: 11th January 2022 | Author: Fulling Mill
Just like that, it’s 2022. Doesn’t your fly box need some fresh new euro nymphs to kick off the new year? You’re in luck. Between 6 new signature designers and in-house patterns, our euro nymphing lineup received a big upgrade this year. While there are dozens of new euro nymphs to choose from, we put together a list of our top 10.
If you’re interested in learning more about our new signature designers, have a look at last week’s blog article.
“My BP (Baetis Perdigon) is just a clean, simple, durable Perdigon pattern. Danville threads used in the construction of this pattern really set these apart from most as the thread seems to glow when resined over. No flash for a natural looking bug. Super slim and clean for quick sink rates which is immensely important with this type of fly.”

Some days the fish want something with a little extra flash. The Hot Rib Duracell will give them just that. A new addition to the 2022 collection, this excellent attractor pattern adds a nice twist to the standard Duracell. This fly can be a great option when there are many naturals in the drift as it will easily stand out in the crowd.
You asked for it and we answered. Anglers loyal to the standard silver beaded Duracell have been wanting the option for copper as sometimes a bead change can make all the difference. And voila: the Duracell with a copper slotted tungsten bead. The color combo is sure to be an important addition to your fly box.
The Pheasant Tail. Can you ever go wrong? If there was ever a fly to always take with you to the river, this would be it. This year we added a range of pheasant tails with CdC collars and various bead options to our collection. Now you can really round out your collection and have options for the days when the fish want something different.
“After having a rough spring day on the Animas river in Durango CO, the bling caddis was born. The Bling Caddis is a flashy anchor caddis fly I tied for the current euro setup I use. The fly did its job extremely well as the summer continued. I fished it as a dropper and it has now become a top fly of choice for me. If you’re seeing shucks the fish are sure to go nuts!”

“A super fly to use in cold waters. Violet tailed flies work so well and in this dark colouration this fly is highly effective in spring and autumn. The body is constructed with peacock spectra dubbing with a subtle red ribbing combined with a pink bead. This makes a highly effective fly.”
– Lubos Roza
In addition to the CdC Pheasant tails above, we added several patterns with hot spot ice dubbed collars. There are plenty of days where fish prefer a little extra trigger on the collar over the natural bug, and these shine on those days. We’re never on the water without them.
This year we’ve added a jig-style Pat’s Rubber Legs to our collection. Tied on our Jig Force Long hook with a slotted tungsten bead, this fly is available in sizes 8 through 12 with a variety of weighting options. We have them in brown, brown and yellow, black, and black and tan. The Jiggy Pat’s takes the original pattern to the next level!
This is a more impressionistic take on a perdigon nymph. These patterns feature a glass bead and hackle fibers set in a manner that give this perdigon a more “lively” look. They will also sink at a slower rate than a standard tungsten beaded perdigon, so they excel in shallow and technical water.
You should always have a caddis in your box. Designed by George Daniel during many days spent fishing Pennsylvania creeks, this is one of his go-to caddis patterns. It’s tied with UV materials to make it stand out amongst the abundance of naturals that can be in the drift when caddis are active.
