Eastern Green Drake Nymph- it's a wiggle nymph, so it has some killer movement when in the water.

 BLT Hopper- A great go-to hopper pattern. Like all good hoppers, it rides low, but is highly visible.

 Legg's BWO Emerger- A pinch of Zelon and 3 Microfibett tails creates the trailing nymphal shuck, imitating an emerging BWO.

 Legg's Foam Inchworm- Inchworms are out across the state. It floats like a cork and remains upright thanks to the elimination of all of the bottom hackle fibers. Take a Prismacolor marker and add some black dots to the green foam for added detail.

Outstanding flies that you have tied. I am really impressed with both wiggle nymphs. In fact the fly shop on the tailrace where I fly fish has never stocked those flies. What size are those--do you use them as a dead drift or can you use them as a dropper?

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the kind words! Hope all is well down in 'Bama.

It's a #6 hook, with a trailing #12 curved shank hook with the hook point clipped off. I tied this one relatively large.

Dead drifting or using them as a dropper works well. Since this fly is pretty heavy, you have to use a very buoyant dry fly (one with foam works well).

Thanks Mark! I'm using 2mm foam on the inchworm.
