I'm trying to find out everyones favorite nymph. Personally. I would say a gold bh white caddis. It looks like those of the caddis in the streams near where I live. I'll try and post a picture of it later, see if it works for you....What does everyone else think?

It could be an old favorite or a new tie.

Does it get much simpler than Walt's Worm?

Wrap something fuzzy on the hook. Done.

As long as there's something in the water that's generally the same colour as whatever you wrapped around the hook, it'll work.

more recently, I'll definitely say a rubber legged copper john, size 20, in red and copper wire. I've been having constant hookups on it.

A red head with long legs and a tight waist. Oh we are talking aa bout flies.

I like walts worm an PT on a curved hook. I like mono eyes on my nymphs instead of beads.

PT def. ranks up there for me, I also do well on walts worms. There are so many diff variations of the PT, bead head, soft hackle, I think it really covers alot of ground when it comes to mayflies. Also, its really cheap to tie, and doesn't take much time

My main's are either a GRHE or a fly I tie that I call Black Bertha. It's a black hackle tail, black dubbed body, silver rib, black hackle and a bead head. Works like a charm for me.

Would have to say Gold Ribbed Hares Ear and variations of that style, i like a dyed mallard wing case , or wood duck , the tail fibers too either wood duck or dyed mallard , they move more than hackle it seems.

I currently am having difficulties uploading photos.....

The smaller a hook you tie it on, usually the better.

You bulk up the body with white thread, you can use a white chenile or floss depending on the look of the caddis in your area.

Towards the front just behind the bead, add a small about of dubbing....I've had tons of luck with that for brookies in small streams, and in other types of situations....

What I was really trying to get out of this was ideas for flies to tie this winter. Anyone have pics of their favorite nymphs?

The #1 reason for people's photo's not working is that they don't meet the size requirements. Just a little bit of help for ya.

I don't fish with nymphs often but the best one i ever used was a sowbug tied by an old friend and one time member here, Jeff F, he tied it mostly for Spring creek. Even I could catch fish with it! I think Maurice knows how it was tied.
