Here’s is Bill Selby’s 2nd nymph pattern that I wanted to share with everyone, especially steelheaders. By the way, these patterns will also work great on panfish, like Crappie, Perch, Bluegill & Pumpkinseed.
This is the 2nd creation, “creature-nymph”, which I will show for those of you that know the effectiveness of drifting nymphs under a float. The hook-eye location is near the middle of the fly. This enables the fly to hang “perpendicular” on the line to the bottom which produces a tantalizing swimming action as it drifts with the current. Bill uses a special epoxy for the head to make it tapered and living rubber legs to add to it’s movement.
