Variations of nymph in #14 TMC 2457 #14
ThreadSheer 14/0 Yellow/Brown
Body: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly, Golden Yellow & Rust, Rib: UTC Vinyl Rib MDG
Head: 2.5mm Tungsten Bead

Experimenting with colors and combinations to get some small nymphs that incooperate the vinyl rib pattern that I really like: it makes the body pop-out. The Rust body + Green Vinyl rib below is my favourite amongst these (both with and without the hackle)




UTC Vinyl Rib MDG

The Vinyl Rib is great for segmented bodies on midges, stoneflies, nymphs, emergers and much more. This is the UTC MDG in chartreuse that I have tied on 3 different sizes to show how the segmentation will appear on different hook sizes. The Rib is slightly see-through and you get a nice effect if you wrap the hook with a different color to get a effect.
