To get back on topic with the OP's thread, I find Walt's Worms to be effective nearly all the time. Just vary the size and color and they are one of the only nymphs you need. I regularly carry them in 6 colors or so. By the way, a Walt's Worm is just dubbing on a hook with or without a bead.

Other nymphs that work well this time of year are pheasant tails, zebra midges, brassies, and scud imitations (I generally use Walt's Worms for these.) From Autumn to Spring though I fish a lot of buggers.

Agreed ^ about a Walt's worm. It's hard to accept, though if you are a fly tyer; just dubbing on a hook works just as well as (or even better) than an expertly tied nymph with a wing case, legs, tail and segmented body.

Here's what an old fly fisher showed me and i use it if the fly line dosen't have a loop. I tie a 10" piece of 20# mono to the line with a blood knot. then put a loop on the end of it once I get it to the size i want about 2" between line and loop. Then I use loop to loop connections for leader, tippet.
