This fly came about after wanting my own Hex Nymph, but I wanted something unique. Michigan has some awesome Hex Nymph patterns tied by some famous tiers, so I used parts from 2 different patterns and threw in my own twist to this fly, and what a better name than “Frankensteiner” for this Hex Pattern. And when Paul’s site came about I thought what a better pattern to share on his awesome site.
