  1. BOB’S GREEN AND BLACK NYMPH

This is my original dressing for this pattern, it works. I later replaced the black dubbing for the body with two or three strands of green peacock herl and a fine silver wire rib, cross wrapped, it works well. An even more effective body, and easier to tie, uses a very fine, peacock effect, fritz like yarn, which used to be available from Steve Pattern/Steve Newsome. If you have any of this yarn, use it for this pattern, it is a killer!  Peacock Ice Dub, available from Tungsten Bead plus, works very well as an alternative for size 16-18 hooks.
