Dirty Martini Nymph

Hey Thread Heads, I just received my order of Firehole stones in the mail. I've been anxious to get these as I had a few patterns I was wanting to tie for the channel. The Dirty Martini nymph is modeled after the cocktail and the olive bead with its red eyes mimic the olive often found swimming in the glass.

I've taken this pattern through a number of different versions before hitting on this configuration. The seal dubbing is great for a natural collar and it can be brushed out to mimic legs. If you do not have access to seal, another dubbing like Simi-seal, Antron, or ice dubbing should fill in fine.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
