Casual Dress

In my book this nymph is in the top 10 list of the most effective trout nymph flies ever created. Some flies are classic, some are beautiful and then some are… well just plain fishy looking. Polly Rosborough’s Casual Dress Nymph definitively drops right into the latter category. It’s a fuzzy pile of fur, but damn… it looks like something that just might creep out of your fly box and go fishing on its own – if you don’t take it out. It might not look like anything in particular, but it suggests just about anything a hungry trout would want to eat. And by the way… don’t let the name fool you. This fly is understated power all the way.

See how I tie this nymph, and get a bit of background on Polly and the Williamson along the way.

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.
