Great Video! I would have to say watching that really reinforces tying nymphs with movement, whether from picked out dubbing on small mayflies to articulated large stoneflies. I watched the entire video, really awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks everybody for the information!

I was surprised at how much flash they give off when rising to the surface. I may incorporate a bit more flash on the tails or just after the wincases on my nypmhs and try lifting. They also rise a lot slower than I had originally believed.

Good post

Ahh, but stonefly don't often get swooped away...they choose to let go to find greener pastures. When they reach slower water is when the swim/sink to the bottom.
Mayflies too.

And while Ed's video is great, filming from an aquarium is different than a swiftly moving stream. And mayflies ready to hatch are different than ones who are causually drifting downstream. However, I will agree that mayflies wiggle a lot more than stoneflies while drifting.

I watched a video of someone tying a wiggle nymph and this thread peaked my interest. My first two attempts are attached. I still need to clip the bend off of the second attempt. Feel free to give me some feedback.
