    Nymphing, adds depth to your fly fishing.
    Nymphing, is fly fishing in another dimension

    Hi Brian,

    Only saw your question now, apologies.

    I use silicone skirts, you should be able to get some from Grant Sports (haven't been there in years), Sensation makes a pack with 6 odd skirts, from one skirt there are usually 3 odd tentacles that you can use. The others are too bright pink, too white etc. In due course I will do a SBS, it will probably consist of 20 odd pics The body is a brush - Fishient Sand coloured sculpting fiber. The front part of the abdomen also Sculpting fiber. Cuurently I also use Fishient micro chenille for the legs, instead of rubber (white round fine rubber you should be able to find inside your jocks or other elastic/stretch cords). I don't use silicone sheets/Organza ribbons for the back, but rather sculpting fiber or craft fur with UV Knot Sense.

    The hooks are connected with 80lb braid. Tie the head part first then connect with the abdomen.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Philip

    Oh, although a sand prawn has one pronounced nipper, keep in mind that this will affect the presentation/stability of the fly when fished across currents.

    If you can't get those silicone skirts in Knysna, let me know and I will send you some.

    Korrie I would do Sedgies. It offers better access to beautiful sand banks for visual fishing of Grunter. If you need specific spots I can try get a map to you.
