Thread: Best Nymph

    If you have ever fished the San Juan then you have probably heard of the Yong Special which is a well known fish catcher on that river.





    Just some Coates & Clark sewing thread, black tying thead for the head, and some head cement.

    when all else fails, a plain pheasant tail, no bead, no flashback works for me.

    Most flies these days are tied to entice the fisherman. The simplest flies tend to work better on days when fish seem to have lockjaw.

    I probably catch more fish on simple tied flies like pheasant tails, yong's specials and basic thread midges.

    I tie a very simple fly that is a killer. Simply a muskrat dubbed body with peacock herl head. I have not been fly fishing long but I am finding that the sparse fly's seem to work the best for me. Another is a peacock herl wrapped body with a partridge soft hackle.

    An important thing to bring up is what might look buggy or even real on the vise can appear totally different to a trout. In my opinion the Hare's Ear with copper wire and no bead is a skunk killer another is the Wolt's Worm. Its supposed to imitate a crane fly larvae but trout typiclly only see that after high water events yet the pattern kills even in low and gin clear conditions.
