I was fishing the slippery rock creek this weekend and saw dragonfly nymphs shells on almost every rock. Anyone have a good pattery to tie them? The easier the better for me, but I'll take any suggestions. Pics are also appreciated!

I think an olive wooleybugger would do nicely. But here are some specific patterns

Try the rubber legged dragon... one of my personal favorites for everything down here in GA...

I personally caught my biggest stocked trout on one of these guys, along with HUGE bluegill. I know of two guys that have caught bass over 4lbs on them too...

I'll almost second Pad's suggestion...one change. Add dumbell or chain eyes to the bugger. You could give it a shell back or not but the eyes will make a difference. Keep the tail short too.
