Here’s an excellent little mayfly nymph. Stillwaters, rivers or streams it’s proven itself on many outings! Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Another great pattern from Curtis Fry of Fly Fish Food. There is a detailed expalnation of the pattern here. This is a beautifully detailed little mayfly nymph, but could easily pass for Chironomid fodder in murkier waters. The ostrich herl tied in on the body should give the fly some amazing movement in the water. It’s a new pattern developed by Curtis which has already claimed a number of hefty trout.
