Locals rarely use small nymphs. They like large attractors. Remember, you can fish nymphs with the large dry flies sometimes with awesome results. Use the attractors as your strike indicators. Now come and fly fish Idaho and don't forget some small nymphs like the BH (Bead Head) Zebra. PS-This fly can also be very effective in red and yellow as well.
Good luck. If you have any specific questions regarding this tying technique or other issues, feel free to email me any time. Also if you want someone with whom to fly fish Idaho, drop me a note. We are always looking for fly fishing friends to join the Idaho Fly Fishers Association. It's FREE!
