Tungsten Skinny Nelson Nymph

Fly Tying with Hans- Tungsten Skinny Nelson


Tungsten Skinny Nelson

The Skinny Nelson is a Baetis nymph pattern developed for the Bighorn River in Montana by Tracy Peterson. It is a simple but deadly fly. It works great in any stream or river with small mayfly nymphs. It can be tied with or without a tungsten bead. Typically the skinny nelson is tied in sizes 18-20, but tying them in slightly larger or smaller sizes works too. Materials: Happy Tying For materials visit our Webstore: http://shop.flyfishsd.com
