Default Re: Nymph Box

My nymph boxes consist of 75% productive nymphs. Some of these I have played with on my vise and proven them on the water, or found the need to add via friends. I have a few new nymphs to try every year but if they do not produce after a couple of outtings they get tossed. Not totally but I don't pack them with me. The basic inventory you have is great, I think Prince Nymphs and a few others may be a good addition.
When I tie up a three nymph set I usually have a very heavy Stonefly Nymph or? Then a beadhead nymph like a PTN and then a Clinging Nymph style fly lightly weighted or not at all.
Anyway the fun part is trying out new patterns and building your own box of successful flies.
