Denny Rickard's Callibaetis Nymph

Rickard's Callibeatis Nymph is an attractor nymph that is tied in a number of colors including black, olive, tan, rusty orange and this peacock version. This is a fullback style nymph, great for fishing lakes in the spring and early summer.

This fly is named the "Callibeatis Nymph" but it is a "Go To" fly when ever fish are working near the surface, feeding on midges or other bugs. It is an impressionistic fly. You can either use a slow retrieve it or let it sit.

The fly can be fished on a floating line with a long leader (12-15') or fished on a sinking line over or around weed beds.

Denny Rickard is an icon of western Stillwater fishing and the author of several books and videos on the subject. http://amzn.to/2uNq49f

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
