Trout Predator Online demonstrates how to tie an olive brown Czech nymph on a size 10 Knapek G hook. This nymph represents the Rycophilia larva, a common green caddis. In spite of its heavy weight, this fly style possesses a slim profile due to its construction methods.
– Size 10 Knapek G hook
– 7X monofilament outer rib
– Small holographic gold tinsel inner rib
– Light olive 1/8in scud back
– Olive brown dubbing blend
– Medium flat lead
– Olive 70 denier thread
– Black permanent marker
