This is my version of the Teeny Nymph. I have a gold tinsel tag on mine. Growing up as a young fly fisher I used this fly in Central Oregon, and caught so many trout with it - it became my go to fly. I swung this fly. I also used it in still water and it did good, but for me swinging this fly I did the best, and I caught lots of big browns with it.
Fly is tied with Ringneck Pheasant Tail Feathers. I found the double bearded/legged version to be the best.
I myself have caught Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, and Smallmouth Bass on the Teeny Nymph.
Fly is unweighted
Tied on a Ahrex NS110 Nordic Salt Streamer Hook
. I super glue the bare hook so when I wrap the Pheasant it adheres to the hook. Not too much glue but enough to help give this fly some longevity.
Two sizes, 8, and 6
