Marabou and Peacock JW Nymph

Fly-tying

Marabou and Peacock JW Nymph

by Beverly Winram |

Nymphing for salmon is a popular and exciting method on chalkstreams and this fly is one of the best. If you can see the fish, bounce the fly in front of its nose, then raise the rod-point to induce a take. Fish it on a 9-10ft 7wt rod.
