The CarpetBagger Nymph

The Carpet Bagger



I became aware of the Carpetbagger nymph through Neil Selbicky of Rogue Guiding.

After countless photo and videos of steelhead taken I knew I had to try it.  Well....Neil wasn't lying.  The CB Nymph is he real deal. The version I tie is a slight variation on the Midnight Fire Carpetbagger. It is by far my favorite version and has proven its worth on both trout and smallmouth for me here in the Northeast.

THANKS NEIL!
