Hi, here is a simple way to tie a well working nymph: The gold bead Red Tag. 1. Ad a bead to your hook 2. Double the lead over the front half of your first layer 3. Apply a little superglue on the hook shank. 4. Push the lead into the beads hole 5. Wind on your tying thread 6. Your choice of tail material 7. Tie in some red unspun multifilament thread 8. Clip the part pointing to the eye closely and tie down tight 9. Cut the tail to the right length 10. Tie in two to three strands of peacock herl 11. Wrap them towards the bead 12. Tie them down leaving a bit of space to the bead 13. Tie in a brown hackle where you tied down the herl 14. Wind your hackle to the bead 15. If you use a white Dyneema as I do, color your thread to your liking 16. Whipfinish 17. Done. If you use a grizzly hackle instead of a brown one, you get a version called "Hexe" in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. "Hexe" means witch - this may give you some indication as to its efficacy. Enjoy tying and fishing, Wolfgang
