Tellico Nymph

The Tellico Nymph

Hook: 1X or 2X Long Nymph Hook, Sizes 6 to 18
Thread: Black 8/0
Weight: Medium Wire, lead-free preferred
Tail: Guinea Hen
Back: Mottled turkey Wing
Rib: Peacock Herl
Body: Yellow, Orange, Red, White Floss,
Hackle: Brown
Note: Cementing the back will make fly more durable.

I found this pattern in Fly Tyer magazine 'twice'. It's named after the Tellico River in Tennessee and takes trout in the Catskills as well. The larger sizes might resemble a stone fly while the smaller sizes, my preference in yellow, resemble a caddis pupa.
