DRONLEE at Fly Tying Nation provides to step by step tutorials on tying his version of the Copper John nymph. Both are only of the same complexity/degree of difficulty of the original Copper John. The pictures are very helpful, of course, in understanding how dronlee arrived at that nice look. Give it a look and keep those wire wraps one right on top of the other as you wrap forward. Nice photography too.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
