Lazy Mans Bitch Creek Nymph

Bitch Creek Nymph

Thread: black
Hook: 6-12 long shank
Under-body: lead wraps
Tail & Antenna: rubber legs
Rib: mono, thread or wire
Abdomen: black chenille and yellow chenille belly 
Thorax: black chenille
Hackle: black or brown hackle

The Bitch Creek Nymph is usually tied with a woven body but I don't weave worth a damn, so I just tied a piece of yellow chenille on the under side of the hook and then pulled it forward to the mid point of the hook. Use the ribbing to keep it in place. Brown hackle is also used but I like the black for this one. Use different color chenille for the under body.
