Thanks man! No not rainbow but a blend of UV olive and UV brown, ribbed with green silk over a slip cut from a baggie. I think I might be able to sneak out after the rains come this way and want to have some stuff to get deep and slow with. I don't fish nymphs much but part of my New Years resolution was to add the shot and bounce the bottom. I have to face it, sometimes they don't rise, sometimes they don't want to chase their food and sometimes I have to feed them what they want.

Hello Fly-Fishing-Fans,

The last two weeks I was too busy to look into the forum and I see that you were tying a lot of beautiful flies. Today I was also found some time to tie some nymphs and here I want to show you the procedure. Often new members ask for some material for beginners, so I chose two nymphs, which are really good for trouts and graylings and which need really not much material.

Click the image to open in full size.
You just need a hare mask, a black thread (with bobbin), copper wire, lead wire, clear varnish, epoxy (with UV-lamp), a pheasant feather, a partridge feather, scissors and a whip finisher.

Click the image to open in full size.
First fix the thread on the hook (here size 12).

Click the image to open in full size.
Fix some fibers (aprox. 4-5) of the pheasant feather.

Click the image to open in full size.
Fix the copper wire and tie the lead wire around the hook.

Click the image to open in full size.
Then fix the lead wire with the thread and add some clear varnish to make the nymph more resistant. Here I use often a tooth pick, which makes it very easy.

Click the image to open in full size.
Then pluck some hair out of the light part of the hare mask and put it on the thread.

Click the image to open in full size.
Then tie the thread around the hook and fix the partridge feather. After that fix some dark hare hairs at the thread. Use tha hairs between the hares ears, which are longer and which play very well in the water.

Click the image to open in full size.
Tie the thread forward and tie the copper wire to the thread and fix and cut it.

Click the image to open in full size.
Flex the partridge feather to the front, fix it and do the final knot. Then add some epoxy on the partridge feather and the head.

Click the image to open in full size.
Harden the expoxy with the UV-lamp and add some clear varnish on the underside.

Hello Fly Fishing Friends,

Here is another nymph which need even less material and which is really easy to tie for beginners.

Click the image to open in full size.
You just need a black thread (with bobbin), clear varnish or expoy (with UV-lamp), some tinsel, a whip finisher, a hook (here size 18) and a scissors.

Click the image to open in full size.
Fix the thread on the hook and cut the end around 4mm behind the hook (it will be the tail).

Click the image to open in full size.
Tie the thread around the hook a little bit conical to the front to form/imitate the shape of the nymph and fix the tinsel.

Click the image to open in full size.
Curve the tinsel to the front, fix and cut it. After that add and fix everything with the clear varnish or the epoxy (harden it with the UV-lamp).

This nymph ist really easy to tie, need no expensive material and will catch grayling or trouts - GUARANTEED
