The simple but deadly Czech Nymph style has a permanent place in our nymph boxes. Sizes from 8 to 16. Colors range in wild to mild. Black, gold, orange and pink tungsten beads. Useful on small streams, medium sized freestones and large rivers.
We are reminded of when the Copper John first showed up. People would be amazed at it's effectiveness in catching fish. For many folks it was the first time they were actually fishing in the right zone, due to the weight of the fly. We are not disregarding the Copper John's ability to catch fish. It's got everything going for it in a nymph. Silhouette of many common nymphs, triggers, color and durability. Most importantly it's weighted well to get in the zone.
The Czech nymph shares those same traits. Get tying.
