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.
We who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.
