Turkey-tail Soft Hackle Nymph (Stone Fly Nymph)


 Here's a great little variation of my Turkey-tail Nymph tied as a wet fly to imitate the stone flies that come off my home creek in early Spring... Dead drift it, then let it swing, then strip it in... Yeah it's a good one. Enjoy!


Materials:
Hook: #14-16 1xl nymph hook
Thread: 8/0 Uni.
Tail and body: Turkey-tail fibers
Rib: Medium copper wire
Thorax: black dubbing of choice
Hackle: Turkey feather from the neck of the bird, 1-1/2 turns.
