T-Bird’s Nail-Nymph !

by Steve Dally at The Ozark Fly Fisher Journal

as a follow up to yesterday’s Davy Knot post, seeing that Teresa ‘T-Bird’ Van Winkle and Davy Wotton are an item, here’s an interesting video on a very successful nymph pattern.
it’s not like replacing standard feather fibres with much-more moving marabou is something new but then its not all that common either and well worth adding a couple of these variants when tying a series of nymphs.
this extra tail movement can be the deciding factor at times and has come in more-than-handy throughout the years for me.
in short, this slight transformation of the tail brings the same nymph pattern somewhere between the ‘traditional’ nymph and a swimming micro streamer, giving the fish in turn another enticing tidbit to wet their appetites. give them a try.
