Fred’s Black Rubber Leg Nymph ...

This nymph has proven valuable on rivers such as the Langkloof and Kraai in slightly high and off-coloured water when nothing else seems to turn the fish on.

The nymph should be used as a search pattern and fished single or in tandem as close as possible to the bottom.  Upstream dead drifting is the preferred method but a Leisering Lift in slower, deeper pools will often entice large fish.

As it is most commonly fished in slightly off-coloured water the leader tippet configuration need not be very long, 10 – 11’ with 4 – 5X at the weakest point.
