Vickie’s All-Purpose Nymph
A go-to pattern during a calliabaetis hatch
My AP Nymph is suggestive of the pupal stage of aquatic insects including caddis pupae, callibaetis mayflies, and damselfly nymphs. It is my go-to pattern when callibaetis mayflies are hatching.
Visibility is enhanced by UV reflective materials integrated into the wing case, abdomen dubbing, and tail, and by the natural luminance of peacock in the thorax. Color selection is relative to the hatch, so be prepared with a variety of colors and sizes.
