Pink Quill Nymph

Fly-tying

Pink Quill Nymph

by Beverly Winram |

While there are times, even in the depths of winter, when a dry-fly can 
work well, a weighted nymph is usually more effective. Weighted nymphs 
and bugs may be fished singly or as part of a team. Another method that works well, especially when the river is clear, is to combine a weighted fly 
with a large, highly visible, dry-fly.
