The Dee Nymph Variant - step by step

This pattern was originally shown to me by Dave Mee when he was the team manager during my days in the England Youth World Team. Dave has played a huge role in my angling career and without his incredible support it is unlikely that I would be doing the things I am today. So thank you Dave! This fly is great for Trout and Grayling, and is particularly effective when Euro Nymphing on the Welsh Dee, hence the name!

Material list:

Hook: Size 12-16 jig 

Bead: Silver or white. 

Tail: A barred feathers fibres.

Rib: Fine opal Mylar 

Body: Light Hare or other cream coloured dubbing.

Thorax: Peacock dubbing mixed with orange dubbing.
