Ginger Snap (Czech nymph)

In this fly tying tutorial, I explain the procedures for tying Kevin Compton's Czech nymph, the "Ginger Snap." This attractor fly, requiring intermediate tying skills, is tied on a jig hook, in line with other Czech-style patterns. The "Ginger Snap" also utilizes additional great components, such as a dubbing loop thorax and peacock quills for the body. Kevin's brother Bryant, who guides for Vail Valley Anglers ( ) uses this pattern on a regular basis, which speaks highly for the pattern.

As referenced in the video, Kevin owns Performance Flies ( ) and you can find all of the required materials through his site. I encourage you to check out the other materials offered because they are all quality products.

Long story short

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.
