Another great fly recipe from Jim Misiura – a Sword Back Nymph. Jim’s usual easy-to-follow style of tying. Very interesting nymph pattern, definitely worth trying – this one is a sure killer on the stream. Thanks Jim.
To tie Jim Misiura’s Sword Back Nymph, you need the following:
- Hook: 2xl nymph hooks in sizes #12 – #18, Jim used Hemingway’s Nymph Fly Barbless Hooks HC114 in size #12
- Bead: 3mm Gold
- Thread: Brown colored
- Tail: Pheasant Tail
- Body: Frosty Fly Stretch Round Rib in Orange
- Wingcase: Peacock Sword
- Thorax: hare blend in chestnut color, we recommend Hemingway’s Hare Plus Dubbing in
- Legs: Brown Goose Biot
Dubbing – Hare Plus – Tan
