James' Twisted Angel Nymph-Salmon Fly
This is my favorite nymph I’ve come up with to date. I recently made a big change to it's design to make it a little more bottom bouncing friendly. I changed to the 700 B hook that has a 45 degree angle toward the head of the hook. I also started putting Dumbell eyes to turn the hook over so that the head bounces along the bottom and the hook rides higher so it won't snag as easy.
