The Micro Nymph

The Micro Nymph

Small, bright and delicious! I've been using this pattern now for a couple of years and it's been an incredible pattern. I saw this fly a couple of years ago on a blog that talked about the French national fly fishing team.  They seemed to do very well with it as a nymph for Grayling.  Obviously, a trout will also be interested in a nice little nymph such as this as well.  As is the case with a lot of Czech and French style nymph patterns, the micro nymph has a distinct "hot spot" that acts as a trigger color on the fly.  You can, of course, mix and max colors on the herl and the head.  Pinks and greens work well on the head while the body can be natural peacock herl or any of the colored variations such as green, orange, red and purple.  If you want the fly to sink a bit faster, try this same style with a bead head or even swap out the herl for some fine colored wire.

Take the time to jot down notes on the patterns you need to replenish, ones you need to work into your repertoire or anything else you want to work on. If you plan the time and note the materials you need, you're much more likely to get it done. Focus on Flies: Work first on the flies you'll need soonest: Seems pretty obvious, but backwards plan your tying activities against the first trips you'll do as the weather warms or the days lengthen. Not only will it ensure you have the flies when
