    Thanks for that Morne. Interesting that you put the soft hackle up the body like that.

    The "Kamberg Nymph" pattern used up here is essentially also a small (#12 short shank, and down) Red-Eye Damsel. I have only ever seen them (and tied them) with chennille eyes, but plan on making some up with the mono / bead eyes.

    Tie in the eyes about 1/4 down from the hook eye, tie in marabou by the tips so that you have a long tail, say 2x shank if short shank, and then simply wind the marabou butts up the shank and figure-8 over the eyes.

    Nice and simple. Seen them in olive, brown and black with eyes in red, white and black.

    HI Morne,

    Love both the ties. Your first fly, maybe use filoplume for more movement. Love it anyways.
