    Default New age nymphs:photos

    Guys,I would like to ask you to post images here of new designs for nymphs.I am hitting a brick wall when it comes to tying new patterns as generally im not too creative.Even my google searches have not really shown me much thats new.
    I think it will also come down to new materials for old patterns,thats fine,as long as it is new.

    Cool idea for a thread.
    Lots of nymph patterns have developed in the last couple of years.

    Not quite new age but very nicely tied fly,and deadly pattern
    I think new age would probably best refer to flies tied with completely different material and generally not resembling anything in particular but trying to get the fish to take on impulse.
    Like the fly is posted.Its very blingy and colourful and not the norm for me to fish or tie,but it will undoubedly work

    The old East European countries are definitely the cutting edge when it comes to new nymph patterns. Very innovative

    Yup, this is a very nice fly.
    A caddis larva, or in Europe, a "scud". These flies became very popular in a variety of colours and models in this country for Czech nymphs, but they have been fished successfully in Europe for decades.
