    Hi guys, my name is Mike Trump and I’ve been flyfishing and fly tying since I was 14 years old (I’m now 32).  I lukred a lot here, but this is my first fly submission.  I primairily fish Missouri (Bennett, the Niangua, the Current, and assorted small streams)  as well as a few rivers out west in Colorado/Wyoming/South Dakota.  I’ve been fishing this nymph pattern for better than 10 years now.  It has become my number 1 nymph no matter where I go and it ALWAYS outfishes any other nymph I’ve tried to date, most by at least 2:1.  I always fish this fly in size 16 and often in tandum with a size 18-20 dropper of assorted varieties (usually a midge or a black flashback PT nymph).

    Why do you specify peacock sword herl fibers?
