Stillwater Dragon Nymph (Doll’s Hair Dragon Fly Nymph)

Doll's Hair Dragon Fly Nymph~GM

Doll's Hair Dragon Fly Nymph~GM

 I decided to separate this pattern out from the just prior post so it can be focused upon as a stillwater fly. It is a very simple yet effective fly. I am not sure where the Doll’s Hair name came from. I tied it with fuzzy brown rug yarn and what use to be a leech yarn. The fly could be weighted by wrapping lead on the shank. The abdomen was the yarn wrapped into a football shape and considerably bigger than the thorax. A hackle was wrapped one to two times at the waist (gap between the abdomen and thorax). The thorax was created by wrapping a pronounced ball of brown ostrich herl. That was it. A darn good fly. I am so glad I rediscovered this fly!!! Try it and let me know if it is productive. Just looking at it you know it has to be. I lost or misplaced or loaned Don Roberts book. If anyone has it I would appreciate the particulars re the Doll’s Hair.
