Fly Tying

Next nymphs to tie

Recommended Posts

All have been said here already but I think your "next to tie list" should really include...



Zebra midge in black/silver, red/copper, olive/gold - beads to match wire Very simple and effective

Kaufmann's Stone in black, brown and yellow - a must have, kinda on the hard side to tie well for a novice tier but once you get it right it isn't that bad

Red Fox Squirrel Nymph (RFSN) - just a killer fly and easy to tie

Guide's Choice Hare's Ear - also a killer fly a tiny bit more difficult to tie than RFSN but very similar skills involved


Don't know if you have one but a Hungarian partridge skin is a must have for the nymph tier. It is great for soft hackles spider style flies and flymphs. I love flymphs. they rock as emergers with a tiny bit of floatant. Plus adding a soft hackle to just about any pattern like the flashback pheasant tail or hare's ear gives it so much more life.
