White Trash Nymph

white trash nymphThe White Trash Nymph has been working great as a dropper on the local Bass and Bluegill lakes recently. The bedded bass really seemed to hate this fly and numerous largemouth were caught while bluegill fishing over the past few months along with some bruiser bluegill as well.  

Its a simple tie, and very effective. It is pretty much a Flashback Hares Ear using  a white Simi Seal like dubbing I've been experimenting with.

Thread: White
Weight: Few turns of lead, Bead or Weightless

Tying Instructions

Start by wrapping lead if you plan to weight them, if not, just start your thread and run a thread base to the tail tie in point. (you can also tie these with a bead, but I like them more traditional thread head myself)

Fold the flash over the thorax to form the wingcase and secure behind the eye tightly. Create a nice thread head and whip finish the fly. Trim the legs.

A little head cement and you've got a quick tie that just produces well. I fish this as a dropper under a Bluegill Candy Hopper or Simple Pimple Hopper with great results.
