Tying the Mohair Nymph

The Mohair Nymph



The Mohair Nymph is a Fall pattern in my box, but fishes well season long as the base pattern in a tandem rig. It's buggy attributes and the translucency from the Canadian Mohair lends to it's success both fished as-is, or with a trailing shuck picked out. This pattern never gets "too chewed" to work.
