Bombs Away : Fly Fish New Zealand

After 5 days of torrential rain most of our local Wanaka rivers and streams are blown out big time . So this is where heavier double tungsten beaded nymphs come into their own helping to get your nymphs down into the "bingo" zone. One of my favorite patterns is the Hooligan nymph from Manic Tackle , this wee number comes in brown /green/black and red and pink it has two tungsten beads and a quill body that is covered in epoxy making it a slim -smooth bodied nymph which allows it to sink quickly in faster- deeper water.
