generic czech nymph

Maybe one of the simplest of all nymphs, but certainly one of the most effective patterns ever. It´s specifically famous amongst competition anglers. That should not stop us though.

Materials needed:

  • CZ grub style or straight nymph hook – I prefer hooks with “big” eyes, as mine are getting bad. Hook size 16 to 10 approximately. I prefer this pattern in size 10 or 12.
  • Dyneema thread
  • “Flexibody” by Virtual Nymph products. In preparation you need to cut a 2 to 3mm wide strip off the card.
  • Dubbing
  • Adhesive lead foil
  • Copper wire

That pattern is very generic as well. Change the colours and materials ad lib.
