Brown Ostrich Nymph

The Ostrich Nymph is a classic suggestive pattern that has falen from popularity somewhat-it shouldn't have! It can be tied in a range of sizes and colours to suit a variety of situations. They're deadly when tied simply and also with added hot spots or flash. To support my channel and enter the giveaways head to and become a patron or support through

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.
