At the Vise: Biot Nymph

This may not look like much. It probably isn’t. But on some days, it does well when trout are looking for Caddis, Olives, or Sulphur nymphs.

It is a pretty easy tie and is very much a “guide fly” with a few materials and a little bit of finger dexterity. You just change up the colors to match the bug you’re trying to mimic.


  • Hook: size 16 barbless Czech nymph
  • Body: olive, PMD, or brown turkey biot and UV resin
  • Bead: tungsten in gold, copper, or black
  • Thorax: grey SLF squirrel or peacock herl

Give it a whirl, and let me know how you do.

  1. I can see why it would be productive. Very nice combination. I bet a chartreuse Biot would also work well. I’m going to give them a try.
