Tying the Missy D Nymph
Finally got around to creating a video of tying the Missy D nymph. I used a ruffed grouse feather for hackle around the collar. I like to use soft hackles on nymphs to give it a little more life like action in the water, but you can use any material to create the buggy legs. This is a great fast water nymph and as a point fly on a two fly nymph set up. You can definately add or remove weight by varying the wire material and/or bead. Tungsten adds a lot of weight, so it works good in the fast water above pools and for fishing pocket water.
