Charlie Craven's Two Bit Hooker nymph - During this fly tying tutorial, I demonstrate the procedures to tie a slight variation of Charlie Craven's "Two Bit Hooker" nymph. This heavy mayfly nymph is intended to get to the bottom of the water column quickly, being that it is tied with two tungsten beads. The fly is a simple one to tie, and I encourage all to vary the colors and size to match the natural insects in your area. In this tutorial, I used olive thread, dubbing, and hen hackle, all to match the Blue Wing Olive (BWO) nymph. A quick change of those will allow you to match the majority of other mayfly nymphs found in our streams. Featured in this fly tying tutorial are the W501BL hooks by Allen Fly Fishing. These nymph hooks are 2x heavy and 1x long, which is perfect for this fly and many other nymphs. Check out those hooks and more here: http://www.allenflyfishing.com/w501bl-wet-fly-nymph-1xl-barbless/ Thanks for viewing this fly tying tutorial for Charlie Craven's "Two Bit Hooker" nymph.
