Nothing complicated but very efficient for fishing grayling and trout using “peche a vue ” – the french technique of fishing with micro nymphs.
Tying this micro nymph is not complicated and is not time consuming. Every fisherman or beginner tier can make this fly in aprox 5min.
Hook: Maruto D82 BL #16 or Demmon DSN 120 BL in size #18 or #20
Body Thread: Demmon Thread Hot Spot Orange
Tying Thread” Uni Trico 17/0
Body: Hends Body Quill
Tail: Coq de Leon – pardo – corzuno medio
Bead: gold tungsten size 2.5mm
Torax: TroutLine Sparkle Nymph Dubbing

Adding a new color of Hends Body Quill will give more pronounced gradient effect:
The last step is adding the dubbing for torax part:
And the final fly:
And different models of micro nymphs tied with Heds Body Quill:
