Look at this idea half way thru the vid to tie in a wing case made of guard hairs and his comment that it increased his strike rate.

Good stuff, but now you are giving the Game away...!

Any extra wing /legs like that on a nymph works bloody well.
Try adding a bead head and a long leader so you can swim it up stream underwater (like wet lining).

Thanks for keeping the thread alive too.

I am in the process of tying Czech nymphs but 403BL[size12] Tiemco are rare as hens teeth in NZ.Snagged a packet off the very helpful Markus in Auckland.Google Zak Nymph. It has the clue that I think all nymphs need.In fact it has 3 ideas which I think need to be incorporated. Waiting for an order of 20 freshwater Marlin killers to arrive from Tauranga.Trying to replicate his style is a waste of time. Grin
