Turdigon - Super Simple Nymph Pattern

 Not a Crappy Fly

Sometimes when you hit the vise you crank out killer bug after killer bug.  Other times, you just crank our turds.  Fortunately the fish eat turds too.  Really though, this pattern is easily modified into a midge pupa or caddis pupa and the subtle flash makes it a great target for trout.  This can be tied with 210 denier thread, or any other fiber that is somewhat thick and "twistable" like Uni Stretch.  Other hot colors and olive, brown, and black.
