Thread: Nymph Selection for April Steel

  1. #1

    Default Nymph Selection for April Steel

    Here is a pic of my "nymph box" for April, what do you guys think? Anything else I must have? I have a bunch more colors of glo bugs ready and some 10-12 mm beads.

    I'd say you got it covered, but you might want to add the MoneyBug in cerise/green as well.

    I'm partial to Jumbo Johns and Big Princes, I also like flanks flies and sparkle shrimp instead of globugs
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    The money bugs look awesome. Read some good info about them too. Ordered a few from the other day along with about 100 other flies. Having never fished for sea-run cutthroats or steelhead, I had few flies that would be appropriate. I would like to pick up some more money bugs myself. When I ordered last week, this is all that was available...

    As for nymphing, I found a few articles online just now that may be worth reading. Sounds like a pretty good technique for the rivers you and I will be fishing.
