The Good 'N Plenty Nymph is a caddis pupa designed by Sierran fly fishing guide,
Hogan Brown. This nymph is found throughout many of the fly shops within the Sierra. The Good 'N Plenty is tied on a curved hook
with a Tungsten Beadhead to get the nymph deep within the water column. The nymph has all of the elements one looks for in a good
pattern. The abdomen is a ribbed and tapered body utilizing a blended mix of synthetic poly which allows the fly to sink. Tan or
Green colorations are usually used for the body and the fly is tied in sizes 12-14.There are legs tied onto each side of the fly using a soft hackle that provides plenty of movement. Ostrich herl and peacock herl provide a lifelike collar giving the fly the contrast necessary for attraction. And the tuft of OV Pearl Krystalflash as a wing provides a lifelike shimmer.
