Tying the Shimmer Stone Nymph with Brian Wise

This Rich Strolis pattern is tied by Fly Fishing The Ozarks’ Brian Wise. It’s a nice break to see Brian finally tying a fly under 6 inches for a change. Speaking of changes, the channel has a slick new intro for the videos and seems to have adopted a looped soundtrack in favor of the dubstep we’ve seen in the past. This is the first nymph in the series, and we are hoping to see more patterns from Brian again after a bit of a hiatus. This is a great pattern, just sub in darker materials if you need dark stones rather than the golden version presented here.
