Great looking pattern, Lucian.  Just curious, do you ever bend the hooks to more accurately imitate the nymph movement (or buy them pre-formed)?

 

Thanks for sharing,

Tim

Thanks :)

@TCTROUT - no,  I do not  bend the hooks for better looking flies. I use them like they are. I love to tie simple and fast tying flies .I always appreciate the realistic work  but I prefer to tie as simple as possible. For example this model is quite complicated  and I do not  very much to tie it. It takes around 10min. But there are a few moments when I go for fishing in Lapland ( north Europe - Polar circle ) when only these  nymphs  work. So I have  with me 10pcs with bead heads and 10  tied classic with wing case and thorax.
