How to Tie a Flying Squirrel Nymph

Producer: Tim Flagler  |  Tightline Productions

Tier and videographer Tim Flagler: “I call this fly the Flying Squirrel Nymph. It’s a mash-up of two of my favorite patterns, Cal Bird’s Birds Nest and Dave Whitlock’s Red Fox Squirrel Nymph. It may not look like any one bug in particular but it resembles many in general. “

    Size of the bead should be 3/32 instead of 7/64. I tied several before I noticed the hook eye was disappearing inside of the bead.
