Here’s a cool nymph pattern from Dave Gamet of Dakota Angler & Outfitter in Rapid City, South Dakota. The video is not quite up to the standards of what we’re used to from Tightline Productions, but Gamet does a great job explaining all the steps and methods required to make this fly, which is not as difficult to tie as it looks. The result is a really attractive nymph, which looks like a winner.
