Damsel Nymph McAlonan Variant
Damsel Nymph McAlonan Variant. Winner of the Fly Tying Masters Round 1This great little pattern from Samual McAlonan from Forth Lanark in Scotland looks like it’ll do the business anywhere!
It is the kind of fly that we would imagine everyone would love to have in his or her fly box.
The tail section has been made by cleverly inserting olive ostrich herl into some Hairline Damsel Nymph Body tubing; it looks the part and has a great action once it’s in the water.
The eyes at the front exaggerate the damsel’s swimming motion and the little red tag and body hackle along with the thorax cover just add to the flies overall appearance. Well done Samuel it certainly deserves 1st place.
