Rabbit Wiggle Nymph
by Ed McCoy
The Rabbit Wiggle Nymph is a nymph that should be in your fly box especially starting in January and continuing through the first part of April. Movement is a great trigger for both Steelhead and Trout. You can fish this pattern dead drift below and Indicator, or swing this fly in riffles or pocket water.
Other color combinations that do well are tan, white, ginger, and olive.
Insert your hook into the vise and attach your thread. Now tie in your first material a long strip of micro rabbit, or you can substitute it with pine squirrel. I like to use the whole strip, to maximize the number of nymphs I can tie. Cutting the rabbit last to judge the tail length properly.
