WONDER NYMPH

I noticed a medicine bottle bobbing downstream .A trout was following it occasionally bumping it with its nose.

I netted :Lincoln Parmers prescription bottle. Inside was an unusual nymph. I contacted Lincoln and was introduced to the Wonder Nymph.

One of Lincolns secret weapons divulged by a curious trout.

The wonder nymph enjoys the properties I look for in a pattern for wild, spring creek trout. It looks the same from all sides, is easy and fun to tie, soft in body texture and looks buggy.

THREAD: black

HOOK: size 10 79580

TAIL: Moose mane.

BODY: grizzly and coachman hackle trimed pictured

THORAX:  black ostrich. I substitute Peacock.

A Wonder Nymph is wonderful when spring deluges turn your pristine spring creek into a muddy mess. Large trout are using their lateral line to feed in water normally a shallow sanctuary for smaller fish.
