Tellico Nymph

Hook: Nymph; here, the 2XL Daiichi
    model 1710; sizes 14 to 10.
Thread: First, bright yellow
    Uni-Stretch bobbin-mounted, then
    black 8/0 Uni-Thread or similar.
Tail: Strands of golden pheasant
    tippet.
Shell: A narrow strip from a brown
    turkey feather, prepared as per
    the tying notes.
Rib: A single narrow peacock herl,
    preferably taken from the longer-
    fronded side of a peacock sword
    feather.
Underbody (optional): Fine
    weighting wire.
Body: The bright yellow Uni-Stretch,
    or bright yellow floss, if you prefer.
Hackle: Brown.
Tying Note: Prepare the turkey strip
    ahead of time by saturating it with
    a flexible adhesive and allowing it
    to dry. Note that the components
    are listed in the order in which
    they are attached. Tie on the tail,
    then tie in the shell strip, followed
    by the peacock herl. If you’ve
    opted for weighting wire, cut short
    the butt ends of the components
    you’ve tied in thus far and abut
    them with the weighting wire.
