Sometimes the most effective patterns can be the easiest to tie. For this rubber leg nymph by Christopher Miller a bead, lead, rubber legs, and chenille are all you need.
Usually we give detailed instructions with our fly tutorials, but with the nymph by Lucian Vasies pictures really are worth more than words. A great versatile pattern that should be in any anglers box.
“Pearl Quill Body is a really great product for small flies, and I was a bit bummed when it was out of production, but low and behold, Kevin over at Performance Flies got on top of it. As a result of the products re-introduction, I put together the video of my favorite little nymph using […]
A very basic, but cleanly, tied nymph. With the basic foundation shown, the color combinations are truely endless. This is a great nymph pattern that should be in and anglers box.
The glitter nymph is a fairly basic pattern in detail, but as Lucian shows even a basic pattern (when tied well) can be quite impressive. Notice the use of UV resin to enhance the visual appeal of the fly and added durability.
Not every fly requires expensive materials to look good and catch fish. While digging through the Hatches flytyingforum.com, I found this “Glove Bug” pattern. This pattern uses a glove that is normally used for washing a car to create a simple, clean, and effective pattern.
This is a new attempt of tying a articulate foam burrowing nymph, which the tail will point up and swing ( head down) when you give small little strip.
An epoxy back mayfly nymph imitation. The flashback on this nymph is made from Hareline Dubbin’s Purple Haze Holographic Fibers. An excellent nymph to imitate Baetis mayflies. Tie in sizes 16-20. I used Clear Cure Goo for the epoxy back. After experimenting with CCG I discovered that the extra fine accessory tips are a must for applying the small amounts needed for epoxy backs on small nymphs.

I love fishing and tying “generic patterns for both inland trout, steelhead, and a variety of warmwater speices. The “Stone-A-Mite Wiggler”, when tied in a variety of sizes and color variations is able to impersonate a wide variety of aquatic insects that live in both warm and cold water environs. Materials: Hook: Daiichi #1130, Sizes […]
Lucian Vasies shows how to tie his Quill Nymph. A very life-like pattern that makes use of stripped peacock herl, which is easily prepared by rubbing a herl with a pencil eraser.
Step 1: The materials My buzzer fly uses only four materials: two kinds of thread and two sorts of tinsel. I have found it practical to build the abdomen of the buzzer fly with stretchy kind of body thread (in this case UNI Stretch) which lays flat and allows for a uniformly narrow profile. On […]

Dave Henry has taken on a great new topic… 2handed rods for trout. While mainly a tool for targeting steelhead and salmon, 2handed rods (commonly called spey or switch rods) have a loyal following looking to expand their horizons; taking a rod that has its origins in swinging flies and applying it to nymphing. Dave does a great job breaking down tackle and technique.
