[Video] JJ's Woven Damsel Nymph

jj damsel

I was inspired to tie up some damsel nymphs after a recent encounter with an emerging damselfly on Tonto Creek here in Arizona.

 

We were exploring the creek and found quite a few of the nymphs under and on rocks.

 

This tie swims great and looks tasty bumping along the creek bottom.
