For those who like to fish with nymphs here is one nymph that I use on rivers with high pressure of fishing. I like to use and test new materials because in time the fish will know all flies used by fishermen (of course if C&R is used) and will be difficult to catch.
So here where I am, in Lombardia – Italy, I like to go on river Adda, a famous river here in Italy. All the time I met fishermen and all the time I fish in places where others tried to catch a few trout with 10min or a half hour before. This is the reason that I modified a little bit my nymphs.
One of them is described bellow:
Hooks : curved caddis fly hooks : Demmon DGH #14
Thread : Orange Hot Spot Thread
Body : Pheasant tail feather – barbs – natural color
Ribbing: UV Ribbing
Torax : A mix of colors from hot spot dubbing
Hot Spots : orange color made by Demmon Hot Spot Thread
Bead: tungsten bead 3mm size
Have fun tying flies
