While there are no secret patterns that are guaranteed to catch fish every time you are on the water, the closest thing to it would be the Pheasant Tail Nymph. This generalist nymph pattern is close enough in color to a host of invertebrate species that - when fished in a number of sizes - can be used to effectively imitate almost any mayfly or stonefly nymph in the water. Ask Steve Widuta about his killer version. Tie up ten of your own version and bring them to the October 10th Chapter Meeting.
