TenkaraBum No Vise Challenge - First timer
#12 Mustad C49s, pheasant feather and olive green thread.
I discovered the the Teeny nymph this spring and it fits my fishing philosophy perfectly - it's simple to tie, it's cheap and it catches fish well. It has replaced the Killer Bug as my go to fly. Photographed is a 13in golden brown from the Diable river near Mont Tremblant, Québec.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
