Kahuna Nymph

tied by siestafred
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Eastern Canada,
Material List:
Hook: Curved beadhead nymph, like Orvis 122J, 12 to 8
Bead: 1/8 or 7/64 Tungsten, gold or black
Tail: Goose biots
Body: Mostly I do 1 or 2 CDC feathers tied in by the tip and wound up the shank. Trim a bit if needed. But I also do them with several strands of Marabou, twisted and wound. I do both Olive, Brown/Tan and Black versions.
Rib: Gold or Copper wire
Legs: Small or medium Centipede (Montana Fly)
Thorax: Peacock herl
Wingcase: Swiss Straw topped with a bead of epoxy

Tying Instructions: This has been my most successful nymph pattern ever. It catches trout everywhere. The name "Kahuna" has evolved because it seems to work like magic, even though it doesn't actually look like any particular nymph species.
Try different sizes and color combos.
Presentation Tips: Dead drift, add split for deeper/faster water.
