Tim Flagler has been busy recently producing two neat videos, which follow here. In the first he shows how he ties one of the best nymph patterns ever created - the Pheasant Tail nymph - in a very small size. These small nymphs imitate many of the small nymphs that become what are known as Blue-winged Olives when they hatch. The second video features some underwater footage taken today of the benthic life found in our home stream, the South Branch of the Raritan River.
Can you name the nymphs seen in the video? There is a stonefly nymph, three mayfly nymphs, a caddis larva and a scud. Do you think these guys know the water is bone chilling cold?
Sharpen your hooks!
Ok...may I guess....I saw the first nymph was a yellow sally..the second was an iso..the third was a baetis,the fourth was a sulphur, then an eporus or a cahill..I don't know if the terminology is correct...and the scud, and caddis larvae were obvious.....how did I do?
I saw a a bunch of stuff that could be imitated by a Pheasant Tail and a Waltz...
Jighook, neither of those flies have a dorsal stripe, but they'll work/do work! Best you stick to a spinning rod with those jig hooks. : )
You know what has a dorsal shape? The fish I catch dorsal fins with pheasant tails and waltz!
Are you sure about that? And what is a dorsal shape? Do you snag your fish on the dorsal fin with those flies? : )
