tied by willbradford
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: ,
Hook: Standard nymph 1x long or natural curve, size 18-22
Thread:Danville 6/0 or 8/0 in black, gray, brown, olive
Tails: Two gray or brown Microfibbets
Thorax and Abdomen: Superfine dubbing in desired color
Emergent Wing: CDC puff or Fine Antron Dubbing
Tying Instructions: Picture says it all. Only note: Make sure your run a couple of wraps between the the two fibbets to make sure they stay splayed.
You can substitue the the CDC wing with just about any material. I've used Darlon, Z-Lon, White Poly, other feathers, foam, and crystal flash. All work well.
Presentation Tips: This baby, originally designed by Rim Chung, is the best Colorado nymph there is. This is obviously just my opinion but there are plenty who share it. Fish it deep and dead drift, fish it the surface film or just below it, dry shake it and fish it on top or swing it like a wet. Trout and Whites go nuts for it!!!! Gray seems to work best in Colorado.
