Black Squirrel Flashback Nymph

With it's flashy appearance, this nymph is sure to turn heads on trout and grayling. In this fourth video in our series on how to tie fuzzy nymphs and streamer flies using hair and fur from skin patches, I tie a typical furry nymph with a flashy wingcase, that give an illusion of the trapped air bobble that many insects create, when rising to the surface for hatching.

I use this for trout, grayling, and whitefish, but it is great for perch, panfish and any other insect eating fish as well.

This is the fourth video in a series of 5. If you haven’t seen the others – check them out right here:

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.
