Tied up a few weighted "Nemo" variants this afternoon for early season when you need to fish that bit deeper......well 15ft down 😉

Nice and heavy, nice big profile to stand out at depth, plenty of colour too. A nymph that works like a lure for those traditionalists.


Hook: Size 10 Fulling Mill Comp Heavyweight Black Nickle
Tail/Hackle : Greenwells Hen
Body: pheasant tail
Rib : fine red holo tinsel
Thorax: Lureflash Mosaic Straggle
Head : 2.5 Fluro Red Tungsten bead
Thread: UTC 140 black.

I’m going to try tying some of these, but will need to get some beads. Would 2.5mm fit B175 size 10?

I wasn’t sure whether or not the Fulling Mill hook was barbless, and I’d need a larger bead to get over the barb on a B175.

A 2.5m bead will go over a size 10 B175 or equivalent hook if you get your thumb nails behind it and push....." persuade it" a little.

It does flatten the barb a bit but it's fine..

Brute force is fine👍
