Tying the Brahma and Squirrel Nymph

Brahma & Squirrel


The B&S Nymph is a great all around search pattern that has done well in my box for 2-3 years now. The movement of the Brahma Wing-Case is what I believe makes this pattern. I prefer to fish this pattern alone, with additional weight below and indicator.
