Top 10 Nymphs for Picky Trout

Here is a great article, Top 10 Nymphs for When Trout Aren’t Keying in on Anything Specific by Bryan Eldredge, an Orvis endorsed guide based out of Utah. He addresses the top 10 nymph patterns that are the most reliable and successful flies for western waters when trout are being picky. I feel confident saying that many anglers and guides would probably agree with him, for the most part. I definitely do and that is why I thought I would share this with you all. I might switch out a couple for the waters here in southwestern Montana but they would be similar or slight variations. He does a great job explaining the flies and the reasons why they have proven themselves to be listed in his top 10. I hope you find this helpful!
