Egan’s Rainbow Warrior

This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the Rainbow Warrior, a fly developed by Lance Egan.

The Rainbow Warrior is a relatively new “old” fly. I enjoy highlighting a variety of flies and this is fly catches fish. 

Lance Egan has been a member of Fly Fishing Team USA since 2003 at the World Fly Fishing Championships. He won the a personal bronze medal at the 2016 event. This is just to say he knows how to catch fish and designs flies that work.

Lance tells the story of how he developed the Rainbow Warrior in his own words in a TroutLegend Forum post. You can read it HERE.

I plan on tying a few more of these flies for my upcoming fly fishing road trip.

Enjoy…go fish!
