In this week’s video from Tightline Productions, Tim shares a great attractor nymph that’s designed to work pretty much anywhere trout swim. It’s a variation of the Sexy Walt’s created by Dave McKenna. This one is really easy to tie, as well, not even requiring any of Tim’s fancy tricks. So twist up a few of these and try them wherever you fish–at home or on the road.

One thought on “Video: How to Tie McKenna’s Sexy Walt’s Worm”
I’ve fallen in love with tungsten bead head nymphs lately. They sink fast and using tight line techniques they are super effective. I was reading an article about the rods, lines and reels to use on this article – https://guiderecommended.com/the-best-rods-reels-line-for-nymph-fishing/ Nymphing is super productive, I’m a catch and release guy, but hooking into a trout is like icing on a cake.
