My precious Nymph is very simple to tye and is a general searching model. “My Precious Nymph” is tied to imitate baetis nymphs, clinger nymphs, swimming and crawler nymphs, basically almost all delicate medium-small nymphs. Because is so simple and tied with only respecting basic elements and classic proportions, the nymphs is a great searching fly. But not because is a searching fly makes this nymph so exceptional! The “secret” is hidden in the material used for body! The body is made of a special thread made of different mixed colors (http://www.troutline.ro/troutline-special-body-thread). When gets wet the main color is very interesting, semi translucent with very nice reflexes and shades. The effect is similar with [extremely rare and expensive] Chadwick wool.
In Nature all insects don’t have a solid color, the main color is in fact a mix between a few colors in different shades. This help insects to have a better camouflage. For this reason a mixed dubbing is more successful than a dubbing in a single color. Same thing with this body thread.
