Copper John | Fly Tying Tutorial

The Copper John is one of the most popular trout nymphs on the planet. Seriously. If you’re looking for a heavy mayfly nymph, this is a go-to pattern for trout rivers across the US and internationally. The Copper John can be tied a few different ways and Jared shows us his version in this episode of the Tying Bench. If you have a vise and are an avid trout angler, this video is for you.
