JP's Christmas Nymph (green)

Monday, 16 December 2013  |  JP

JP's Christmas Fly (green) - 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.

Hook: Fish On Wet 'n' Dry
Bead: Fish On countersunk tungsten
Thread: Fish On UTS (matching colour)
Tag: Glo-Brite Floss
Rib: Fish On coloured wire
Thorax: Fish On Shimmer-Dub
