Bug nymphs – my favourite top nymphs for trout fishing

2 Permalink

Usually the trout bug nymphs are more hairy and bigger compared with flies used for grayling. Trout loves to hunt and big nymphs are what this fish like.
Based on my experience in years of fishing I made a special box with nymphs that works especially for trout and I use in the first part of the season. These flies are in Troutline catalog too:

    I notice that you get a very good-looking “shaggy” or spikey effect with your dubbing technique, but the fibers are not overly long. Please explain how you do this. Is it accomplished by brushing out the dubbing, then trimming it before winding the rib, or with a dubbing loop, etc.? Your flies look excellent!
