pick your 2 favorite nymphs from this selection ------>Cabela's: Cabela's Nymph Flies - Per Dozen this is just for future reference. not buying any of them wanting to know which ones are most effective and what people like and different opinions on them as well.

Brandon, have you heard of Jim Teeny and his Nymph designs? I have used brown, black, and green Teeny nymphs for years with great success.

From that selection I would take the BH prince nymph and the stonefly. Use them together for a double nymph set-up. Tie on the stonefly and follow it with the BH prince and you'll catch fish. You'll get more hits on the prince because the stonefly helps it get down into the "zone". Also, IMO, a fish will go "check out" the stonefly and then see the prince and hit it.

Hmmm....only two ???

That makes it tough!

I would say beadhead prince nymph, a great all around choice for most trout fishing, second pick I would take the pheasant tail nymph to imitate a lot of mayfly type nymphs. Can't flyfish with only 2 flies tough!

Bead Head Prince, and Bead Head Hare's Ear both in size 16; these are the only two small nymphs I fish, and I do relatively well, if I do say so myself.

Seriously though, it amazes me how few people fish Mega Princes and Possie buggers; if you don't know, now you know. Try either, or better both, in a size 10.

With those four flies, I would argue that you would never need another nymph for trout. They adequately cover the spectrum of colors. You can tie them with Ice Dub, or with natural fibers. You can make them both very dark or very light changing nothing but the dubbing you use. I even tie them all with varying amounts of rust colored dubbing in the fall to imitate October Caddis hatches.

The Teeny Nymph operates under the same principle, and Jim Teeny has made a career of fishing nothing but "one" fly. I prefer the bead head style, and I don't particularly like working with Deer Hair, but really, you could not go wrong there either. Less emphasis on crazy patterns, and more emphasis on color variation is the way to go, IMO.

HAHA...

Just did a Google Video search for "teeny Nymph," and some interesting things came up. Just another reason not to look at fly tying videos at work.

So, what did you do...type in Nympho? LOL

BTW, the same thing can happen when researching the White House too. That one happened to me, in a college computer lab. Talk about embarrassing!

The Internets are a crazy, crazy place.

I just typed "teeny nymph" and the results were a mixed-bag.
