The Montana Nymph is classic nymph pattern developed sometime in the 1950’s. It remains a favorite today among many trout anglers, as well as Bluegill fisherman. The Montana Nymph is a great bluegill fly and is also deadly on small Bass and Crappie. No one really knows what the Montana Nymph imitates. Some think it is a Stonefly, others think it’s just an attractor pattern. But whatever it is, it does catch fish!! Happy tying!
