Sulphur Nymph Patterns

Hey guys,

I'm starting to tie up some Sulphur nymphs; however, I'm not getting the correct dubbing color. Can anyone share their specific dubbing blend and possibly post a picture?
Much appreciated,
Jason

Second vote for the good old pheasant tail.

The attached photo contains a bunch of different nymphs from spring creek in centre county. The sulphurs are the yellowish ones with the blackish wing-cases. I also basically use pheasant tails to imitate them. I use the pheasant tails that are died yellow for the body, black thin-skin for the wing case and brown-olive SLF dubbing for the thorax, which is fast to tie and it looks very buggy after you pick it out.

Idk, i dont see the sense in getting all specific with sulphurs. I use copper johns and PTs all throughout may, for every mayfly. I've never had any problem catching fish.

PT's in many sizes... I go from 20 to 12 with and without bead heads... may not be an exact match, but works very well.

I use this pattern sometimes. but on less pressured streams a PT is perfect. (Tan thread, ginger-ish dubbing, olive thread rib, and wingcase material of choice)

I have caught a lot of fish on a unweightewd/floated PT about 12" behind/below a sulphur parachute.
One trip I caugth three fish in a row with both flies stuck side-by-side in the fish's mouths.

jjbrown,
Welcome to PAFF.
With regards to sulpher nymph colors, any generic brown nymph pattern will do the trick. Unlike sulpher duns, which tend to be a cream color, the nymphs are usually a medium to dark brown - sort of a walnut to chocolate color, often with speckled legs and tail.

Keep in mind that dubbing darkens when wet too.

I don't know if there is a more highly pressured stream in the state than spring creek, and the PT works pretty well there throughout the hatch. I don't think trout ever learn what a pheasant tail nymph is, no matter how many they may see. If a fish is selectively feeding on sulphur nymphs, you will be able to catch it on a pheasant tail.

This pattern is a modification of a Loren Williams fly - his dark sulphur nymph. Loren is updating his website, and he hasn't put that tutorial back up. Loren is one heck of a great tyer!

http://www.flyguysoutfitting.com/guiding

Here's the recipe:

hook - Tiemco 3761 sz 14

weight - 10 wraps of .020 lead wire, covered with thread, and pinched flat with smooth jaw pliers

thread - tan Danville 6/0

rib - black Ultra wire sz small

tail and legs - partridge

abdomen and wingcase - mottled turkey tail

thorax - dubbing mix: 50% ginger rabbit, 25% red fox squirrel, 25% orange antron
