Tying the Burlap Nymph

The Burlap Nymph


The Burlap Nymph was shown to me 20+ years ago in Washington State as a large Stonefly nymph, it did well. Back on the East coast it went untied for many years,until a half dozen years ago when I began using the same principles but tying it as a smaller bead-head. It worked out well in the East Coast also. Its a naturally buggy, simple pattern that works on both trout and panfish.
