Default Pow Wow a Tenkara style swimming nymph

Click the image to open in full size.

swimming nymph hook size 10-16
tail-hen
reversed hackle-hen
thorax-Steelhead Ice mixed with STS Trilobal Salmon/Steelhead dub (you
do not have to have this, you can go natural instead if you prefer)
ribbing-copper oval rib, or use gold wire/mylar tinsel as substitute
weight-optional, I used lead tape in the mid section
Swim Nymph Dub- I used squirrel, woodchuck, rabbit, hare mixed with a bit of antron, and a bit of flash for the body of the fly

This fly may be any color of your choice. Tan, Brown, Olive, Rusty Orange, Gray, or Black would be recommended colors. You may use whatever hen feather you prefer, or even fur instead of hen feather, if you choose to. I tied this as a weighted fly, but you can tie it un-weighted as well.
