Tied up a couple of these for my local river, worked a treat, especially the ones in brown. Great little fly

Collyer's Grey Nymph

I think this helped catch the then UK rod caught rainbow trout record (for about 5 minutes) in the early 1970s'

Collyer's Brown Nymph

This was probably always the second most popular colour, after the Green (olive) variant.

Steve,

I have a green nymph tied by your father, he gave it to me. It is a bit moth eaten. I would never use it.

Your father was amused by the nymphs sold by others as Collyer's Green, he said they were always Leprechaun green. I also have a goose primary feather he gave me so I would get the colour right, very washed out olive. Good memories :-)
