Tying The All Rounder Nymph with Steve Cullen

One of Steve's favourite Flies for early Season Brown Trout, is the All Round Nymph, which is a fairly large nymph pattern with a 3/3.5mm bead on the end for a serious sink rate. The reason the bead is so large is so that this fly can get down through the water, near the bottom where fish are actively feeding on a hatch, it makes it ideal for Streams and Stillwaters. As Steve explains in the video, a lot of early seasons flies are based off nymphs which always seem to be rather large which is why this fly has a size 12 hook. Steve rounds off his video by tying in a trigger or collar to the fly, this is optional but is recommended to allow the Trout to easily detect the fly. As always these flies can be tied in a variety of colours and sizes and is best used during March/April time.

All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always, if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Time to tie an All Rounder Nymph, with the guidance of Steve Cullen.
