About the Leaded Phantom Nymph Trout Fly

One of several stalking patterns which Bill Sibbons popularised at Rockbourne and Damerham in the seventies and eighties, imitating the phantom nymph, which has a silvery almost ghostly appearance in the water.
As with many of Bill’s patterns, an easy pattern to dress, so long as you have plenty of lead wire and some superglue.

Expert Tip:

A few minutes of observation will more than make up for any apparently lost fishing time.
