Re: Best Nymph
I have always wondered about what is referred to as the "buggy" look. Insects have exoskeletons so the surface should be smooth, not fuzzy if one wants to create a "buggy" look.
As for patterns, I look at the latest pattern that seems to be catching fish around here and figure out how to imitate the pattern using fewer materials and simpler tying techniques. Sometimes it even works! (heh,, heh)
