Miracle Nymph

$2.25

The Miracle Nymph is a great example of the saying that less is more. This little fly is especially in tailwater fisheries like the South Platte, Blue, Frying Pan, Taylor, Big Horn, and North Platte rivers.  There are several variations of the Miracle Nymph out there, but we have found the original recipe is all you need.

Don’t let the simplicity of this pattern fool you—it has consistently fooled selective trout all over the United States.  A tungsten variation has the same goals in mind, but has a quicker sink rate and works well for dry and dropper applications.

Fishing Strategies:

The Miracle Nymph fishes well under a  wide range of conditions, regardless of the season.  It is especially effective at the beginning of a midge hatch.  Once you begin to see adults hovering above the water, you should switch from a larva to a pupa pattern.  In the initial stages of a midge hatch, we tend to fish a Miracle Nymph off an attractor (i.e. egg pattern) to draw attention to the small fly below.  As the hatch intensifies, drop a Black Beauty off another pupae (Top Secret Midge, Manhattan Midge, etc.) as the trout are feeding selectively on midges.  Observation is key when trying to match the hatch.  Look at the size of the adults and match the pupa accordingly.
