JP's Christmas Nymph (red)

Monday, 16 December 2013  |  JP

JP's Christmas Fly (red) - This fly is not as "gimmiky " as the name suggests. On pressured grayling waters the fish can have seen it all by this time of year... A familiar profile tied in a solid and vivid colour can pique the fish's interest where drab flies and hot-spots have lost their "magic". Try using unusual colours rather than opting for the old standard of pink.
