This is one of a series of jigged nymphs that will allow you to stock your box with a range of nymph colors that cover the fundamental range of colors and be confident that you will be able to entice some grabs from trout in a wide variety of waters.
The series (I sometimes refer to these as Kiwi nymphs but that is being a little presumptuous) includes nymphs with overall shades of tan, olive, and blackish. All feature mottled tungsten slotted beads and a hot spot, and all are tied on size 16 barbless hooks, but of course any of these nymphs can and should be modified to suit the angler/tyer’s intuition.
