Thanks for the info, I found this link for Tarcher Nymph. Guess I reinvented a fly...
The Pic is from FlyFish America

The legs for the example are mono colored black. The tail is marlabou, rib is green "V-Rib", Green Rabbit dubing with flash mixed in, Turkey wing case, and bead chain eye's.
The working pattern has peacock legs and a strip of lead along the bottom, tied lengthwise to help keep the desired profile.

|flyfisha1||What material is used for the legs?|

|flytyer||This looks like a TARCHER NYMPH tied in damsel nymph colors. The only difference is the legs, the TARCHER NYMPHS used a hackle that then had the thorax figure 8'ed over so they stuck out the sides. This nymph design has been around for over 20 years and is a very effective one.|

Bottom Hugging Damsel
After a quick search of the internet looking at real Damsel Nympths I noticed that almost all of them that were on the bottom had there tail extemded upward clutching a rock or twig. After a little thought I tied this one, could be good for still water.
I tied this one with mono legs because I wanted to see if I could tie a fly that would stand up on its own for a picture. The working modle had peacock legs and a strip of lead on the bottom along with the bead eye's to keep it upright.
