Chocolate Mayfly Nymph tied by crowbuster Fly Type: Nymphs
Target Species: Trout
Dark Brown Lifecycle Dubbing or Nature's Spirit dubbing, brown
Turkey Tail shellback and legs
Basic nymph formula. Nothing special
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.
