    Default EEE NYMPH - Fly of the Week - January 04, 2010

    EEE NYMPH

    This fly was a mistake. I was trying to tie a simple impressionistic perch streamer when I cut the wing way too short. For some reason I kept it instead of stripping the hook and it has become a favorite for searching the slower back waters of Michigan Rivers in May and June. I don?t know if trout take it for a hex nymph, a damsel nymph or just a big slow swimming meal but it works. I had to think of a name for it when I tied it for the Al Campbell memorial auction and I thought that Al would have liked the idea of an easy economical and effective fly. Besides from the top it looks a lot like the view of my muddy hunting boot when looking down.

    For some reason the finished fly picture got lost. This is what it looks like:

    Rainbowchaser, I'm glad you posted the last picture. I was scratching my head trying to visualize it. The fly would work well as a matuka on say a 6 or 8 streamer hook. Thank you for the FOTW. Jim
    I'm either going to, coming from or thinking about fishing. Jim
