Default wiggle nymphs?

well since its just bout steelhead season I am gonna get out the custom 7wt and clean it up goo and get a new leader on there and get it ready to go. also gonna tie me up some more steelies flies to replace the ones that got slayed last year!! got to get busy and toe up lots of clousers, buggers, glo eggs, sucker spawns, crystal meths and stoneflies and other basic nymphs that I had luck on last year.. I was thinking tho. what if I made all my nymph patterns wiggle nymphs instead or regular. what ya guys think of them? anyone use them? saw a guy catch a few steelhead using one last year. do you think the "wiggle" effect makes a difference in catch rate than just using basic regular nymphs? just wanted to hear your takes. I will make some wiggle pheasent tails and wiggle stones and wiggle hares ears and post um soon.

Default Re: wiggle nymphs?

My $0.02 worth I wouldn't take the extra time it will take you to tye them. I have friends that swear by them; but when you are dead drifting them what will make them wiggle? I fish a small nymph (usually a stonefly) and egg combo for the majority of my Steelie fishing and I do pretty well. I can tye at least two simple nymphs; depending on the pattern in the time it will take to tye a wiggle nymph.

thanks dan. ya I also used regular stonefly nymphs and eggs too. maybe i will make just a few wiggle stones and test them out and see if they help any. I know the regular stones work just fine but wondered if the wiggle helped any.
