Tim Flagler has been busy recently producing two neat videos, which follow here. In the first he shows how he ties one of the best nymph patterns ever created - the Pheasant Tail nymph - in a very small size. These small nymphs imitate many of the small nymphs that become what are known as Blue-winged Olives when they hatch. The second video features some underwater footage taken today of the benthic life found in our home stream, the South Branch of the Raritan River.
Can you name the nymphs seen in the video? There is a stonefly nymph, three mayfly nymphs, a caddis larva and a scud. Do you think these guys know the water is bone chilling cold?
