Fox Squirrel Nymph

$2.75

Dave Whitlock’s Fox Squirrel Nymph is a deadly little well rounded nymph that can imitate various living organisms in the water column.  According to Dave Whitlock, “the Fox Squirrel Nymph, is an impressionistic fly.”  This simply means, that it a great attractor nymph pattern that looks alive and can imitate multiple living organisms including, stoneflies, caddisflies and mayflies. I believe most trout that it as a stonefly or caddis nymph.  Although, in smaller sizes it works wonders as a mayfly nymph.

Description

Dave Whitlock’s Fox Squirrel Nymph is a deadly well rounded nymph that can imitate various living organisms in the water column.  According to Dave Whitlock, “the Fox Squirrel Nymph, is an impressionistic fly.”  It is a great attractor nymph pattern that looks alive and can imitate, stoneflies, caddisflies and mayflies. We believe most trout take it as a stonefly or caddis nymph.  Although, in smaller sizes it works great as a mayfly nymph.

Fishing Strategies:

The Fox Squirrel Nymph is a proven favorite anywhere stoneflies and caddisflies are present.  During the summer months you cannot go wrong fishing a two-fly rig consisting of a larger attractor trailing two smaller nymphs behind.  This tandem set up can imitate a stonefly, caddis, and or baetis, some of the most important food sources during the spring and summer seasons.  We recommend fishing these patterns with a  dead-drift.  Another advantage of this fly is that it has an excellent sink rate, which gets  the fly “in the zone” quickly.
