Large Dark Olive Copper Bead Nymph

Tiny Tungsten Copper Bead Nymph

          I think I'm presenting the Large Dark Olive imitations kind of backwards. The nymph with the tiny copper tungsten bead would probably be the first one to try out if the trout or grayling isn't surface feeding. If you then encounter spooky trout the nymph with the tiny black tungsten perhaps would be to prefer. When the fish is surface feeding you would probably do well with a Large Dark Olive Dun imitation if it's this is what the fish is feeding on. Here in Sweden it will probably take some weeks before the LDO nymphs start being active so order of presentation of the LDO in it's different phases won't matter. This nymph is tied like the one I presented in my last post but it has a shiny copper tungsten bead to catch some attention when the water is cold. Well that kind of concludes this post so until the next one ...

Greetings from a freezing cold Sweden,

The time is getting closer and you'll have the opportunity to test such a fly.

Hi Alan!

Yes, longing for standing in a stream waving a stick armed with something the trout might like. It's wonderful to just watch a hatch of mayflies. I'm mostly a dry fly kind of guy but on occasions I might use a nymph or a soft hackle fly to entice the trout. Thanks for your comment!
