The Road to Wingless Wet Flies or Flymphs

by Tony Bishop on May 28, 2006

An interesting piece on Global Flyfisher covering ‘flymphs’ (sometime called ‘Spider’ flies, mainly in the UK) which are flies halfway betwen a dry fly and a nymph. As it should be; the flies represent a nymphs making their way to the surface.

The article covers a little of their history, how to fish them, and some patterns to tie. I regularly carry some flymphs in my fly boxes – they have provided a way to catch fish when all else has failed – which of course begs the question, why don’t I use them first?
