Fly Days of August: Mahogany Nymph

August 27th, 2009 · No Comments

Here is a very simple nymph pattern that has been effective in the fall for the Mahogany Dun hatch. The simplicity makes me doubt the complex flies that I tie, or better said, doubt the time I put in for the complex flies. Reminds me of a quote from someone (forgot who), that most things that trout eat are brown, fuzzy, and 3/8 inch long.

This is also an example of the speciality materials you accumulate over time. Somewhere along the line, I had to buy a package of Mahogany dubbing to tie these.
