    Ira Lingren developed some buggy-looking, easy-to-tie nymphs that catch fish; can't ask for more than that. Here's the olive version; change colors to suit your needs.

    hook - Mustad 3906B #14
    thread - Danville 6/0 black
    rib - wire x-small gold
    tail - black hackle fibers
    abdomen - marabou olive
    thorax -peacock herl
    hackle - hen black


    mash barb and attach thread and wire; keep tag end of wire on far side of hook while wrapping thread to point above hook barb

    measure some hen hackle barbs (hook gap past the bend) and tie in

    tie in some marabou fibers (keep it sparse) and wrap body up to 60% mark
