So Fred emailed me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I might be interested in a couple of nice nymphs he'd been enjoying. (Just to make it clear, the nymphs I'm talking about here are fishing flies *grin*.) I've fished with Fred and he's one fantastic trout fisherman... so when he says a fly is good, I listen. He sent them along and they look great and, importantly to me, easy to tie.
I will take a few closeup pictures of them and get the images and directions onto the Web site soon.
He also threw in a nice Hornberg. Fred ties his Hornbergs complete with jungle cock eyes and he lacquers (head cement or "hard as nails") the wings. I plan to use this sample for another project of mine, which will be a topic for a future post.
