Cut Loop Nymphs

A great way to easily add multiple gills and/or legs to nymph or shrimp patterns. A spiral of fibres is wound up the body over a plastic tube held in place under the body with temporary thread wraps. The fibres are then locked in place along the back with UV-resin, the tube removed and the resulting loops cut to form the gills or legs. I've used organza fibres in the video, but the same method could be used with any long synthetic fibre. Thanks for watching.

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.
