Tim Cammisa’s Fly Tying: Chuck Furimsky’s “Chuck Nymph”

Bringing you one of the new Tim Cammisa’s video tutorials. This time he shows us how to tie a Chuck Nymph, a pattern created by Chuck Furimsky. This is not your ordinary mayfly nymph. Chuck Nymph features some unique fly tying material – a specially-cut leather called Bugskin that provides awesome action in the water. Definitely a must-try pattern! Thanks Tim for sharing with us.
