Semi Realistic Universal Nymph

4 No tags Permalink

This fly catch fish, especially in the places where trout or grayling have enough time to check the flies. This model is not difficult to be tied but needs a little bit more time and more attention during tying steps.

  • Hook: Daiichi 1190 BL – #16
  • Weight: tungsten wire
  • Underbody: light grey thread
  • Body: Troutline nymph Skin – small
  • Thorax: Mad Rabbit Dubbing natural
  • Gills: white body thread trapped between nymph skin turns and ostrich turns right behind thorax dubbing
  • Back: Brown CDC – I like it because small air bubbles are trapped on it

    Would really like to see a video or have the technique explained on tying those gills. It’s a great looking fly and would like to try it on some New Zealand trout next spring.
