Notes:
Lance EganThe Rainbow Warrior is a nymph attractor pattern designed by Lance Egan of Salt Lake City, Utah. Lance is a member of the National Fly Fishing Team USA and has developed a number of fly patterns to keep a competitive edge. His patterns tend to be suggestive with trigger mechanisms yet simple with a minimal amount of material. Lance orginally tied the Rainbow Warrior on a TMC 2457 nymph/emerger hook sizes 12-22 but over the last few years a jig hook, such as the Daiichi 4640 or Firehole 516, has become very popular using it as the "point fly" in a European style nymphing rig, ie Czech Nymphing. The advantage is that the fly rides point up so that there is less snagging the bottom. The tailing material on many of the warriors has gone from Pheasant Tail fibers to CDL Tailing fibers since they are thinner and stronger.
