Belly Bumper Golden Stone: Nymph Tying Tutorial

In this video, Simon ties a killer inverted golden stone nymph. This features a new hook from Tiemco that just came out: the 201R. The hook is reminiscent of a 200R, but has a slightly shorter shank, and a wider gape. His inspiration for this fly came from the large amount of gold stone nymphs he has been seining up in our local rivers lately. For this fly he uses an insta jig bead to invert the fly like a jigged nymph. Tossing a handful of these in your palm, or onto any surface you will see they always land hook point up. This aids in reducing the amount of times you snag the bottom. This fly has a fair amount of weight, making it a great fly for high water, or point fly for euro nymphing. This can be tied in a variety of colors and sizes to effectively mimic the food in your local system.
