Floating Nymph

With the mayfly season just around the corner, it is like christmas for dry-fly fishers at the moment. Watching theese majestic insects floating down the stream and dissapear in the mouth of a rising trout or grayling is the dream-sight of a dryflyenthusiast. In this video we once again have John Petermann behind the vice tying up a universal pattern - The Floating Nymph, which can be tied in various colors for matching the different species of hatching nymphs - a “must-have” patttern in the box.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
