- Pheasant Tail or its variants, such as the Frenchie. The Pheasant Tail mimics swimmer nymphs, such as Baetis
- Midges. Midge larvae and pupae are nearly always in the drift
- Walt’s Worm or Sexy Walt’s. These are quickie versions of a Hare’s Ear for me. Bulky and buggy-looking nymphs mimic clinger nymphs, like Quill Gordons and March Browns. I rarely tie the H.E., as it takes too much time
