Winged Victory Nymph - More Variations

My original Winged Victory Nymph - BWO has been a successful fly since its birth. It has become THE Essential hatch-matching pattern at Livingston's spring creeks. With further studies of other mayfly species and newly acquired tying materials, I have expanded color & size variations. Just as BWO variation, these are also recommended to trail behind visible dry-flies WITHOUT any floatant. Let them sink naturally to the depth where trout are selectively feeding on ascending nymphs. "Sink naturally" includes the depth just below the surface film! So grease trailer tippet accordingly instead!!
Split Wing-case, protruding wings, and famous EYES (all crated by rubber legs) are just the same!
