Blue Moose Nymph

Blue Moose Nymph



The Blue Moose Nymph is one of 3 patterns I tie utilizing moose body hair. It has been a very productive pattern for me when the leaves fall & the water temps drop. This is one of my first picks when the fish are midging on those bluebird winter days, but will not take on top. Fished under an indicator, this nymph has saved a good number of days for me.
