Fly Tying: Teeny Nymph

A NW U.S. fly fishing entrepreneur, Jim Teeny, reportedly created the Teeny Nymph in the early 60’s on Oregon’s East Lake while chasing big browns and ‘bows. The pattern has been around since then, but frankly doesn’t seem to get the recognition it deserves. Given the material used, ringneck pheasant tail, it should be a hit with tiers. Perhaps it is that the pattern was aggressively touted as a Steelhead/Salmon pattern on NW/US waters and not trout? Perhaps, it seemed too drab; too simple? Well, the pattern is still around and has progressed beyond the original look with more colors and contrasts. Perhaps another look is in order?

I have met Jim at shop presentations over the years and have always found him to be down to earth and approachable. If you see him at a show, walk up and start a conversation. He and his wife, Donna, are very nice people. Jim also has an excellent assortment of fly lines and other products.
