Countach Nymph - Jig

Cheech - October, 2018

I get it, not everybody can own a beautiful Lamborghini Countach with a V-12 engine... Not everyone can have Bum Equipment belly shirts, Reebok Pumps, and Girbeaud jeans. What you can have, is the Countach Nymph. This fly is kind of a joke between two of my buddies that I used to go to lunch with all the time until they very rudely quit their jobs and took their talents to south beach.. And by south beach, I mean Elko, NV... Anyway, Scott and Clint, here is the fly that is named after our lunch buddy group called the Countach club. (If you want to join the Countach Club, email me for an application.) Aside from razzing my buddies, this fly has lots of really fishy characteristics, and can be fished in lots of situations. I'm pretty sure you could tie squirrel dubbing and rubber legs on anything and it would fish. I have also tied this fly with Arizona synthetic dub, and dark rabbit dub. Just vary the colors and match your local bugs! ~ Cheech
