Tying the APB Nymph

The APB Nymph



The APB nymph has been in my box for 4-5 seasons now, earning itself a firm lease on its ow bin. It carries the attributes of countless existing nymph patterns, and when put together has proven to be very effective as an indicator nymph. This is the darker sister to my C2C nymph, and is quite often a starting point for me when prospecting new water.
