Here is a great recipe for a hydropsyche nymph pattern using our Weighted Hydropsyche Larva Bodies with Hooks. It is an easy-to-follow series of steps, in Jim’s usual style, and it shows how these handy bodies can be used to make some super-effective flies. Very simple recipe and great results. Thanks Jim for sharing!
