Nessie Flymph

Postby Johnno » Sat Apr 14, 2018 5:18 am

Designed to imitate one of our local mayflies, Nesameletus ornatus, aka the Nessie...

Hook is a 12 94840, thread of olive silk, tail of natural mottled grey Coq de Leon hen saddle, hackle of mottled grey CdL hen and body of touch dubbed grey rabbit and mohair


Nothing special but seems to work on occasion....

Johnno ~ Well done! Looking at a photo of a "Nessie" I can easily see how your pattern would work quite well. ... p?id=29912

Very nice fly. I'm guessing that's a Mustad 94842? A 94840 isn't an up-eye.

Johnno, that could pass for a number of our local mayflies as well. Very nice, sparse flymph pattern.

Now that’s a fishing fly! Looks irresistible.

Beautiful pattern John.

Wow"! Great looking pattern for sure! It is "insectness" and that is a good thing! You do really good work at the vice and I always like seeing what you have to offer! This one is no exception! It is great!
Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.
