I don't know why but I keep trying to come up with a new damselfly nymph pattern. Most likely because I haven't found one yet that seems to work consistently. Lately, I've been using Pseudo Hair (Hareline) instead of marabou for my experimental patterns. Pseudo Hair has the same "wiggle" properties of marabou when wet and isn't as fragile. I've noticed that a damselfly nymph is quite bulbous at the head and thorax so I'm working on a pattern that is weight forward. I like the looks of this one but ultimately, it is up to the fish.
