Lance Gray Nymphs

Lance Gray has been guiding on Northern California waters for over 25 years. Lance developed this series of nymphs for the challenging waters where he spends so much time.

The X-May series of flies started as a combination of the S&M Nymph and the Micro May. Lance prefers to tie the X-May with the wire holding in the tail and gill plate while at the same time creating the ribbed body. This allows a fast and durable body to be made. The olive color was the original and then he added brown, black, and red. The Callibaetis is an X-May that has been stretched. It swims great in the water when stripped slowly. The Black Sabbath and Bon Jovi are flies that are a combination or an off-shoot of the Prince Nymph and the X-May together. Lance has incorporated goose biots to represent more of a caddis appearing fly.

Lance’s X-May will work in most waters throughout the West. With the slim profile and the bead, these nymphs get down into the trout’s strike zone. Some of the patterns are designed to imitate specific hatches, such as the PMD, and others are general all-purpose nymphs.

Streamers

Swinging for trout is becoming more popular, and we have a series of streamers that fish well when swinging. Using the Fish Skull mask, the fly has a fishy profile and some weight to help it stay down while swinging.

Flesh Flies

Flesh Flies are very effective way to catch big trout when they are keyed into the high protein of eggs and flesh during a salmon spawn.
