Latex Damsel Nymph

Latex Damsel Nymph

The actual Damsel Nymph

This Damsel nymph pattern was tie with similar technique spin off from the Latex Dragonfly Nymph... as some water have more Damsel nymph and the best thing about Damsel nymph is, they are a swimmer... you can fish them at different water pocket.

Latex sheet
Hook - any long shank nymph hook size 10-8
Burned mono eye
Goose biots
CDC puff or marabou as tail

Step by step tying instruction:

Prepare the hook, here I bend the hook, but you can tie it straight from the hook, bending it is just personal preference

Wind in some lead wire about 1/4 near the hook eye, use some surgical tape to taper the body

Tie in the CDC puff or you can also use marabou

Tie in the latex strip 
( one of the best latex strip which is durable is Nymph skin by Virtual Nymph ) but I'm using latex strip cut from a normal latex glove

Wind in the latex strip, tie it down

Tie in 3 pairs of goose biots as legs

Prepare the mono eye

Tie in the mono eye

Dub in some dubbing to split the legs

Fold over the latex, tie down as head

Tie down the latex near the last pair of legs as thorax

Trim the latex, keep about 5mm for the wing case

 Now trim the latex to form the wing case

Color the pattern with markers

Now it's ready... 
It's a very simple and easy tie pattern.... very effective too...
