Hogan’s S&M Nymph

Hogan’s S&M Nymph Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Hogan’s S&M Nymph is a small mayfly nymph developed by Hogan Brown.  The S&M Nymph is a thin and sparse mayfly pattern, with a little flash added to the legs.  The S&M Nymph works great on western tailwaters, but also works very well on freestone rivers as well.  The S&M Nymph is best tied in olive and brown variations.  But purple ones have been a secret weapon for many anglers!  The S&M Nymph is a quick and easy tie.  Most tiers prefer them in sizes #14-18.  This is a must have fly in any western fly box!
