“Nothing complicated but very efficient for fishing grayling and trout using “peche a vue ” – the french technique of fishing with micro nymphs.

Tying this micro nymph is not complicated and is not time consuming. Every fisherman or beginner tier can make this fly in aprox 5min.” – Lucian Vacies

Starting with making the underbody, fixing the Coq de leon barbs and a fiber of Hends Body Quill:

Working with Body Quill is easy but a lot of tiers make the basic mistake -keeping the reinforced fiber . This fiber should be taken away, only the fine band is used.

Bellow I changed the color of the thread to give a gradient color:

The body of the micro nymph will look like this one :

Adding a new color of Hends Body Quill will give more pronounced gradient effect:

The last step is adding the dubbing for torax part:

And the final fly:
