Balanced Ostrich Damsel Nymph Fly Tying Video

Balanced Damsel Nymph

In this video Simon demonstrates how to tie a balanced damsel nymph. The pattern is relatively simple to tie, and uses dyed ostrich feathers to create an “active in the water” nymph. The Balanced Ostrich Damsel Nymph can be used in lakes or slow moving streams. Be sure to have a good set of wire cutters for the balanced pins!
