This pattern is based on Steve Thornton’s Ammonite nymph dressing, a real favourite amongst many tyers and fly fishers alike. The original Flexibody abdomen has been replaced with one utilising woven embroidery thread. This offers a great segmented and flat abdomen profile which many nymphs have. It’s a great searching pattern and, change the colour combination of the embroidery thread, many nymph species can be covered by it too. In this video we have teamed ud with the skilled flyfisher and flytyer Neil Darling who will demonstrate this beautiful technique.
