Ginger Snap (Czech nymph)
In this fly tying tutorial, I explain the procedures for tying Kevin Compton's Czech nymph, the "Ginger Snap." This attractor fly, requiring intermediate tying skills, is tied on a jig hook, in line with other Czech-style patterns. The "Ginger Snap" also utilizes additional great components, such as a dubbing loop thorax and peacock quills for the body. Kevin's brother Bryant, who guides for Vail Valley Anglers ( http://www.vailvalleyanglers.com/guid... ) uses this pattern on a regular basis, which speaks highly for the pattern.
As referenced in the video, Kevin owns Performance Flies ( http://www.performanceflies.com/ ) and you can find all of the required materials through his site. I encourage you to check out the other materials offered because they are all quality products.
