    Default What is Your Favorite Damselfly Nymph Pattern?

    Just curious as to what your favorite damsel nymph pattern is. I have a few that I use, but I'm always open to new ideas and killer patterns.

    Here are a few I like:

    KG's Killer Damsel:


    I believe this is similar to the Orvis Damsel pattern:


    These next two are spinoffs of Stalcup's Ultra Damsel:




    So, what do you use and make sure you give us pics if possible.

    Darn those are all great KG. The one that I like the best is the KG Killer pattern. What a neat extended body, plus it has to have a lot of action.
    I'll post mine later. I've been using Leroy Hyatt's glass bead Damsel as my "go-to". It's 4 sm green glass beads on a 2xl hook for the body; marabou tail; mono eyes; marabou head.

    Thanks, guys. I tie the extended body simply by tying in about 6-8 marabou strands at the bend of the hook and then continuing to wrap my thread out around the marabou while holding the marabou tips, and then back to the hook. Takes a little practice, but it works great and makes a pretty durable fly. Imparts incredible action in the water.
