As mayfly nymphs spend most of their time close to the bottom and only moves longer distances by swimming or drifting downstream when they seek food, accidently loose their grip or when they are about to hatch, it is a vice choice to fish an imitation close to the bottom when you can’t see any mayflies hatch. The nymphs are active all year a round and are of interest for the angler from spring to autumn. This fly is weighted with tungsten.
Size: 28 mm / approx 1.1/8 in Hook: J:son NP #4
Realistic imitation of a large sized mayfly nymph, such as the "Green Drake". Colours and sizes of the real nymph and adult mayfly can vary.
We recommend that you use a J:son Swivel for all your fly fishing, no matter what type of fly you are using. However, it is necessary to use a J:son Swivel when ever you fish a size 1 or 2 J:son fly.
Please note the number at the end of the fly name is related to the size of fly and not the amount you will receive.
So for example Mayfly Nymph 3 is only one fly and not x3.
PLEASE NOTE PICTURE IS OF A MAYFLY NYMPH IN SULPHUR NOT OLIVE BROWN BUT WE ARE SHOWING ITHE PIC SO YOU CAN SEE THE SCALE OF THE NYMPH. PLEASE SEE OTHER LISTINGS FOR THE CORRECT COLOUR.
