Adam Arnal's Flies

May 2021

Hook:  2xl Curved nymph- Sz 16-12
Bead: Gold(optional)

Body: MFC Mini barred marabou-yellow barred brown
Rib: Gold wire-Small
Wingcase: Pheasant tail -Tan 
Thorax: Ice dub-UV tan
Flashback: Gold mylar tinsel -medium
Be sure to tie a few up with a Gold bead sized appropriately to the hook. This will give the fly a faster sink rate.  A great pattern for both moving and stillwaters.  Floating, clear intermediate are my prefered lines for fishing this fly.
