Tying the Squirrels Nest Nymph

The Squirrels Nest Nymph



The Squirrels Nest Nymph is a prospecting nymph for all waters. Dead-drifted or beneath an indicator, this pattern repeatedly brings fish to hand. A fast pattern to tie, you'll be thankful, because you will be refilling this bin repeatedly throughout the season.
