The Ace of Spades Nymph

You will need:
  • Hook: B175, size 10
  • Thread: Black floss
  • Tail: Black cock
  • Body: Silver tinsel
  • Rib: Cut-down Pseudo hackle
  • Wind and hackle: Mallard

There’s no getting away from the fact that most of the better fish you’ll encounter fall for something small and imitative. Nymphs are high up on the resident trout’s menu and this hybrid of lure and nymph works very well. Its make-up appeals to both resident trout and also stockies; black is pretty much one of the best colours out there – add a little bit of silver flash and you’ve a winner. Fish this like you would any other nymph, but also don’t be afraid to pull it!
