Sparkle tungsten hydropsyche

Print Post  
Oliver Edwards is has been a great influence in my tying
and even more to my mate Andreas that is the orginator of this
variant. This is the sparkle variant of Mr Edwards famous hydropsyche larvae that
has caught loads of fish for both me and Andreas.
The orginal has got pheasant tail legs, nymph skin body and
lead insted of tungsten lace as weight.
Works great both in a hopper dropper combo or in czeck nymphing.
Try it out near Tekapo and Omarama since it worked great there. Wink

Hook: Czeck nymph hook size 10-14
Weight: 4 strips of tungsten lace tied in so each lace is 1 mm shorter than the other, creating a bulb on the middle of the hook
Under body: Silk in appropriate colour in this case orange or green
Over body: Flexi body in either green or orange
Gills: White ostrich feather
Ribbing: Grey strong tying thread that is wedge in betwheen each segment to secure the ostrich gills.
Legs: Black ostrich or white dyed black with magic marker
Sealing of the rubber: Dave"s flexament
