Around the same time as Jans GP came out someone was asking about a pattern for Conrad Voss Bark Nymph, a pattern by Mick Huffer appears in Fly Fishing and Fly Tying September 2008 issue on pages 58 to 63 inclusive along with two variations one is a simple tail variation the other a floating or surface attractor. Step by step tying instructions with pictures and a good general write up including how to fish the fly. If you do not know Mick Huffer look him up on Google great tyer, very good fisherman and an all round good guy. Cracking fly works a treat in bright sunshine just about everywhere.
All the Best and I hope this gets to the guy who asked about it.

We don't sell anything. We're an online non-commercial fly fishing magazine.

I live in the us and cannot find some of the materials to tie the fly. Can you give me the name of a shop(s) where you are located so i can purchase the materials required to build the fly.

Thank you

I don't think that the TMC 2488 is the right equivalent hook. The 2488 is a straight eyed curved hook. I really like this pattern, I'm going to tie some up and try them here in the States.

Hi claudia
the fly works well just left drifting with the wind, or jerking back slow and stopping. Try different ways. Keep intouch Jan
