i live in connectict where there are no salmon/steelhead streams available to fish these flies

 

i tie them because i enjoy tying them. i like expanding my tying abilities, trying new genres of fly tying and digging around in my books and the internet for older and intersting fly patterns. some people will think thats crazy but i dont pay much attention to negative naysayers smile.png

 

i have never given much thought of selling any flies i tie. this forum is a hard place to sell anything. :(

Nymbeet-800.jpg

 

Nymbeet (Stuart Napier)

 

Hook - Mustad 3906/3906B

Thread - Black.

Tail - Small bunch of black cock hackle equaling the hook length.

Back - A strip of black crow wing or substitute, doubled over lengthways and reaching almost halfway down the sides of the fly, tied in by the tip end.

Body - The original dressing has an underbody of black marabou silk, wrapped with a strip of clear plastic from a particular washing up pot cleaner. Clear Vinyl Rib or Nymph Rib can be substituted. They are three times thicker, so the underbody can be eliminated.

Hackle - Two turns of black cock, the fibers the same length as shank (leave full, not gathered underneath into a 'throat style).

There might not be such a thing as a purple caddis, but that fly would definitely work here in the Smokies. Yellow has always been a standard productive color, but purple is really hot right now.
