Topics I've Started

No tying thread Nymph - a French type of fly

18 February 2019 - 08:26 AM

Hi guys, 


Here is a short video about tying a nymph  without using thread. It is made only with UV Resin and Lead wire. Even if is considered a strange fly and lots of guys are not confident in using it, this kind of nymph is used with success for aprox 15 years on rivers from  French Alps. The nymph is more efficient if is tied very small, down to #22 ( on straight hooks ). It is called ceramic nymph and the original tying process is very complicated ( it is used special dye for ceramic to color a fly and you need at least  a few hours to finish it )

Here is my short version on this fly,  it imitates a ryachophila larva and I had success with  tied on size #16 and #18.

Something super simple and easy to tie. Same fly only the dubbing is different ( one from squirrel and other from hare mask )

Something that worked well for me last season:

bass and perch bait micro streamer

Here is my most successful  pattern for fishing bass and perch on lakes in Italy.

I had lot of results with this model. It is simple , a 4min tying time  fly:




years ago I used epoxy to coat the body, for this reason tying time was longer. A marker to color the belly and another coating with head cement. But in time the epoxy goes yellow and was not on my taste. Now I'm very happy to use uv resin :)

Swimming nymphs with gills

why I like these flies:

*Not bulky and not big,in fact are tied on size #12-16.

*The slim profile  help the fly to sink as faster as possible.

*Durable with a semi-realistic look these flies catch fish.
