Tom Nixon Memorial Fly Swap


.56%er




Originator: Tom Nixon

Hook: #8-16 4X long, TDE bronze or gold Aberdeen
Tail: Lemon colored wood duck side feather fibers
Body: Oxford gray yarn with a yellow or orange yarn belly stripe
Hackle: Grizzly, stripped on one side


The fly should be weighted with 10 turns of #25 lead wire (recommended for a #10 hook, weight should be adjusted proportionately for other hook sizes). The body should appear long and lean. The hackle should be tied in by the tip at the bend of the hook and palmered forward to give a sparse effect.

Tyer: Rick Zieger, Lamoni, IA
