The Skip Nymph (Skip Morris) is designed to show a contrasting bodied nymph of dark over light, much like the real nymph. I hadn’t tied this in a few years, so the initial efforts (3-6) usually are a fine tuning effort. The pictures show the over dubbing, misaligned ribbing as well as a better effort with peacock for the abdomen.

Would the above fly fish ok? Sure it would. A size 14 fly, even with tier’s imperfections, would fish just fine. But, I do possess a little bit of interest in some uniformity and appearance.
