The Micro Nymph tied bellow with Catgut Biothread is a fly used in East Europe for his realistic look and for “easy to be tied” fact. A fly like this is efficient for his generic aspect and can be considered a search type of pattern. In fact this pattern is tied with body made of different types of threads but catgut gives a special look . The translucency is very unique and gives a realistic aspect to all flies ( nymphs or emergers ) tied with this fantastic material.
To tie this nymph you need aprox 3-6 min depending of the tyier skills . An advice is to keep the catgut biothread for 4-5min in water before use ( only the segment that is needed )
