Ordinary Quill Nymph

0 No tags Permalink

This nymph can be used  in lakes and rivers because I consider it a simple searching fly. The ordinary quill nymph  as I named, can be used as a small mayfly swimming nymph,  buzzer or a general  baetis.

Materials used:

  • Hook Demmon G602  because the bend of the hook shank suits better for a swimming nymph compared with a classic buzzer or caddis hook
  • Thread: black
  • Tail: mallard barbs – tips only
  • Body: Selected stripped quill – in natural or colored as you like
  • Thorax: rusty trilobal dubb
  • Bead: tungsten in  black nickel
  • Hot Spot: orange thread
