How to Tie a Weighted Isonychia Nymph

Producer: Tim Flagler

Tim Flagler ties a standard weighted Isonychia Nymph on a size 12 Dai-Riki #270 3x long hook.  He also uses .02 lead-free wire to add weight.  He includes tips on conserving wire and using UV resin to finish the pattern with an attractive wing case.

“Here in the northeast,” says Flagler, “an Iso nymph, fished with a good bit of movement, will catch fish nearly year-round.”
