Chocolate Mayfly Nymph

tied by crowbuster
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Dark Brown Lifecycle Dubbing or Nature's Spirit dubbing, brown
Copper Wire
Turkey Tail shellback and legs
Brown Biots
Tying Instructions: Basic nymph formula. Nothing special
Presentation Tips: I created this pattern because I have always found mayflies nymphs under rocks in this "chocolate" color. The pheasant Tail nymphs are close, but I dont think they are bulky enough for most mayfly nymphs.
