Leons Grizzle Marabou Nymph
Originated and Tied by Guthrie Fly

Leons Grizzle Marabou Nymph

Name Leons Grizzle Marabou Nymph
Category Salmon and Trout Species
HookKamasan B100 Trout Shrimp Buzzer Hook Size 10
Body3mm Gold bead head, Yellow tying thread, tying in Grizzle hackle. Build thorax with Olive Hare s Ear Yarn. Simple effective patterns. This variant incorporates a little White Marabou. See also Leons Grizzle Nymph
CommentsI have found these patterns both effective on Stillwater fishing and River fishing. Good pattern to try when all else seems to fail.
Fishing Tips On Stillwater among weed beds, retrieving slowly seems to attract takes. Fish will follow fly very close to bank before itaking it. For River fishing, I just allow it to drift in the current. takes can be hard when you least expect it!

This pattern was originated and tied by Leon Guthrie of Galashiels, Scotland. You can see more of his originals at The Flies of Leon Guthrie.
