Jon's Motion Prawn

These Motion Prawns were designed by Jon Ingi Agustsson in 2002. The Motion Prawn was one of the first steelhead flies to use craft fur, which had been used for some time in saltwater flies. The MP incorporates a bead bedded behind the head, giving the fly a great balance or jigging action, depending on retrieve. The MP has gathered a small but loyal following over the past decade amongst steelheaders in the Northwest. Available in sizes 1/0 through 4.
