video - Simple Nymph

Postby Hans Weilenmann » Mon Apr 01, 2013 8:01 am

The Simple Nymph is a slender Baetis nymph imitation - its very skinny outline mimics the body shape of the natural very well, and it cuts through the surface film easily.


Simple Nymph
Hook: Umpqua U203 #14, or any longshank curved hook
Thread: Benecchi 12/0, dark brown
Wingcase: Ell skin (alternative: Thin Skin)
Eyes: Melted mono, #15
Tail: Golden Pheasant or Lady Amherst tippet, dyed chestnut - two barbs, tied short and somewhat splayed
Abdomen: Tying thread - coated with thin clear varnish
Thorax: Pine squirrel
