Emerson, did you tie that nymph ?

Did you put that deer carcass in the tree ?

And did you use all of that animal to tie the nymph ?

John,
The nymph is called Al's rat, named after the inventor...Al Miller from around Allentown, PA

Use a size 18, 20, 22 or 24 hook. It imitates a midge pupae but could also be an emerger. You can use it on the surface, in the film or underneath.

To tie: Use either brown or red thread...start at bend and go to eye building a small body as you gp.Take some muskrat and dub a thorax keeping the guard hairs in....the nymph works great!

Obviously, it is only for picky trout..like brown or rainbow as opposed to speckled..

That deer looks like the one I took to Harkers..... when the wake was done.

Em, it just looks like a good nymph. I'm not a multi-fly guy ... only
fish one at a time. Do you use it as a trailer or alone ?

Cutter, do you have deer in your wake ?

John,
It is really tough to fish that Al's rat alone on the surface due to you cannot see it. Around here, we fish a dry fly and its corresponding emerger trailing...the fish hit the emerger 8 or 10 times to 1 for the dry...It is the only way to go. You just make a loop as if you are tying the fly on to the leader...put the loop around the bend of the lead hook and then about 6 to 8 inches...tie the trail fly...that is the deal...you watch the dry and you swear the fish ate it the dry. When you get the fish in...the smaller one fly is in the mouth of the fish!

No John. I took a smoked leg of venison down for the Golfito Wake. It got carved down pretty quick.
