Montana Nymph

This nymph is proberbly one of the most known imitations for the large dark stonefly nymphs of North America, and was first tied by Lew Oatman of New York. It has later become a very popular pattern for stillwater fishing for rainbow trouts. The original version is the black/yellow version which our own stillwater-expert Håkan Karsnäser is tying in this video, but changing the size and colors can be done to match the smaller stoneflies - and remember to tie some bright colored versions for murky or cold water or just to provoke the biggest trout in the lake or river.

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.
