This week we bring you a great nymph pattern that my good friend and regular fishing partner, Vincent Caffarra, developed. The Isonychia, or Slate Drake as it is commonly known, is very abundant in our Eastern freestone rivers and streams and this pattern mimics the natural well. In the video, the fly looks somewhat light in color, but once it gets wet it looks like the real thing. Again, thanks go to Tightline Productions - Tim and Joan Flagler - for another well-produced video.
Fish them all year 'round in sizes #10 down to #16, and sharpen the hook every so often.

Nice iso nymph , nicer guy , Vinnie is a class act. At some of the rahway river trout unlimited fly tying nights Vinnie is nothing but helpful and positive , everyone looks forward to seeing Vin , except when he is looking for rising fish in my favorite haunts.
Great pattern Vinnie. I was really surprised to find out that Vinnie was an avid fly fisherman/tier. He is my favorite character in Jersey Shore. Haha... Seriously Vin. Nice pattern, thanks for sharing. Jake
Vinnie practically begged me to take a look at this....only kidding Vin...pretty cool though....
Vinnie gave me a call yesterday to tell me I got everything right, except he uses the black band on a turkey tail feather for the wingcase.
And yes, I couldn't agree more...Vinnie is a great guy, and a hell of a fisherman.
