So what nymphs are best for tempting Early Season Trout & Grayling and what's the most used material for tying flies?
Hares Ear & CdC ... so, mix them together and we should have all we need, right?
We know that these nymphs need to fish in deep pockets and find that shiny copper and silver work best, so we added a 3.5 mm slotted-tungsten bead. This fly is ribbed with Veevus flat tinsel rainbow ribbing. For the body thread, we've used Veevus GSP 30D in white and black.
The body material is one of the best we can use for nymphs - hares mask mixed with ice UV dubbing. The body shell is natural CdC
Generally, the water levels at this time of year are average to high, so we've also added a 3.5 mm slotted tungsten bead to a size 14 Ahrex FW551 mini-jig hook. But what about the hot spot that everyone loves?
When you fish a nymph on a jig hook it fishes upside down so the tail will always be above the gravel. Adding a hotspot to the thorax area isn't so important, but it is important for the nymph to be seen, so we've added it to the tail, in 4 different colours:
- Baby Pink (with a Gold tungsten bead)
- Fluoro Green (with a Copper tungsten bead)
- Fluoro Purple (with a Silver tungsten bead)
- Fluoro Orange (with a Copper tungsten bead)
Each of the above nymphs weighs in at 0.38g
These specialist Early Season Trout & Grayling nymphs are all tied on size 14 Ahrex FW551 Mini Jig hooks. Our Bosnian Tungsten Tag Selection contains 12 nymphs (4 different tag colours, 3 of each in size 14).
Please Remember: We've only 30 of these selections available, so if you want a set, you will need to be quick - Our Bosnian flies always sell out within a few hours of being released!
