Olive Seeker Jigged Nymph Fly Tying Video

This is the olive-hued jigged nymph in the three-pattern series.  Frankly, the olive hue to be in the eye  of the beholder, but trust that you can adjust the body and bead colors to achieve the colors that suit you and the trout. Taking the time to craft a dozen of each of these nymphs will help stock your boxes with a range of patterns that are sure to be attractive to trout in some of the waters, seasons, and times of day you fish.

The mottled tungsten beads offer something different when you are fishing pressured water and the trout are seeing a lot of shiny bead heads floating past.

Best wishes and good luck on the water. JN
