Fly Tying Tutorial: Robin Phillips' Golden Nugget

The Golden Nugget Is a Modern Medium-Size Baitfish Imitation

The Golden Nugget is easy to tie and highly effective on the water! Using the Fish-Skull Baitfish Head to help with swimming action, profile, and depth, this versatile streamer fly pattern can be fished for most freshwater and saltwater applications.

His fly tying and fly fishing videos are quickly making their way to the top of the list, and the Fly Fishing the Ozarks Youtube Channel is the fastest growing channel in the fly fishing genre.

    I would like to buy the materials to tie Robin Phillips’ Golden Nugget. I have been on your web site and all I could find was the fish skulls and hooks. Do you have the other material needed somewhere on your web page? I also want to know what other colors have been effective for this fly.

    kind regards,
