Copper Nymph

The Copper Nymph is a Scottish fly that could be seen as something of a precursor to the Copper John, but it's a fantastic river pattern for trout and grayling in its own right. It can be fished in a variety of ways but I have found it to be a very effective nymph for duo style fishing. Try changing the colours to suggest different species of insect or add hotspots for attraction. 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.
