I am under the impression that flymphs have soft hackles wound in fairly open turns over the thorax.?

I saw this nymph from Scotland on youtube and deceived to try a couple on the local streams.  It's called the "Ke Diawl", In the video it's tied with a jungle cock wing case which I subbed for starling tip.

Not all of them. This pattern was taken from Allen Mcgee's book Tying and Fishing Soft Hackled Nymphs.

First attempt at a muddler minnow came out pretty good. Could maybe have used a slightly larger clump of deer hair and I might have trimmed the head a tad too small, but it'll fish.

Not necessarily Rocco. There are many flymphs with the hackle tied at the collar.

Thank you- I just ordered a new nymph box and I've decided to fill it with new flies as much as possible.  I've gotten a little better at this hobby over the years so I'm trying to limit the amount of nymphs that I will transfer from the old box.  Here is the link to the fly I copied.

I'd love to BUT my wife and I are in the middle of a full kitchen renovation so until we reach a point where the kitchen is usable getting out to fish is tough.  That said, the new counter tops are scheduled for install on Friday and if that goes well I should be able to get out on Saturday morning for a few hours.
