That is Steve Cullen’s variant of the Nomad sample tied. Initially tied by Rob Spiller the Nomad is a superb all spherical lure for Trout in stillwaters everywhere in the nation. Steve recommends fishing this sample on any loch that is received a head of coarse fish, the mixture of colors and flash on this variant makes it very efficient when the fish are feeding on fry.
Ideally fish this as a single fly on a floating or intermediate line. The Nomad type has the bead tied simply in entrance of the hook level, barely additional again than a standard lure with a tapered head that offers it fairly a stage plain on retreive so use a determine of 8 or collection of lengthy sluggish pulls so as to add a little bit of life and be prepared for takes on the drop.
Have a number of of those prepared for when Trout have switched to fry feeding on reservoirs or stillwaters.
