It's been quite a while since I last tied one of these Oliver Edwards Hydropsyche nymphs. I'll try to keep you updated on the progress I might make.


Hook: Knapek G #10 + sticky back led foil

Tails: Fluffy fibres from pheasant skin

Body: Nymph skin, chartreuse

Gils: Two strands of ostrich herl

Legs: Golden pheasant tail fibres


+ Colour markers and varnish. Not happy about the colouring and the fact that one of the legs are pointing backwards.


Back at it!

Much more pleased with the result of this evenings harvest.


This time I coloured the body in two stages. The first with a medium dark olive marker, followed by random spots of a yellow olive one. This causes the colours to bleed into each other and thus creating a somewhat life-like shade.


Hope you'll like this.
