Not sure what it is about this fly on the waters I fish here in Colorado, but this size 16 little nymph does well on freestone and tailwaters.

Great look Michael. This one will do well here as well. What’s the thorax material please? Another one for my must have box. 👍

@trublubug I’ll give you the recipe. TMC2488 in size 16. Brown 70 in UTC. Tail is brown hackle. Body is polish quill wrapped with small gold wire. MFC’s UV frogs hair dubbing in olive. Looks more brown than olive. Legs I used MFC small barred sexy floss. The wing case is MFC nymph back natural in size 16. I then used Solarez to coat the quill and wing case.

Oh and the bead is 5/64 gold tungsten. Brass will do fine.

Thanks Michael. Lots of brown to amber (general overall color) nymphs in many of my waters. 16-18 size match is perfect. Your pattern will be a killer here IMHO.

Nice, I’ve tied a made-up fly almost exactly like this and didn’t even know it was a pattern already.
