Tippets: Jennifer Kelley Joins Fly Life, Tying Durable Nymphs

  • Jennifer Kelley, an experienced environmental policy facilitator and natural resources adviser will join Fly Life Magazine as Conservation Editor in May of 2018. She will manage all aspects of the magazine’s conservation voice.
  • Nymphs take a beating not only from fish, but also from hitting river rocks and streambeds. In this post Kent Klewein writes about a great idea for making more durable flies: “One way I increase the durability of my nymphs is to finish off the heads of my flies by folding over and super gluing down a piece of thin skin. This tying technique covers the vulnerable thread at the head of the fly and makes a nice looking nymph wing pad.” Via Gink & Gasoline.
