The Bad Princess is a pattern that we created here on the waters in town of the Boise River. We wanted a dark and slim profile fly that could cut through the water layers right into the strike zone. We fished it without the pink hot spot and it did fine. However, when we put on the pink hot spot, it turned into a fish catching machine and often find its way on my rig. We usually like to fish this pattern in smaller sizes such as 16 and 18 and find it to do very well on the bottom fly. The slim body with UV glue and the tungsten bead really sinks this fly fast. I would give this royalty fly a try on your next outing.
