      Hi Jeff,
      In France (in Alps, in Jura region ) these are called Frenchies and are flies made 25 years ago or more 🙂 I know that in US and UK a nymph with body made of barbs from pheasant tail and collar of hot orange or orange dubbing is called frenchies too. In fact this type of nymph was used by Czech fishermen and Polish fishermen almost 30 years ago under different names. These flies where popular a while ago ( around 1995-2000 ) in fishing competitions..
      Thank you for your comment :),
