Copper Lager Nymph

Copper Lager Nymph


The Copper Lager nymph got it's name because of it's appearance. However, it has stayed in my box since last spring because it caught fish.  Gets to the bottom, swims when drifted under an indicator and fishes as a small streamer as well.  I like to fish this pattern with an egg as a dropper.
