Any of you guys ever hear of the Parker nymph? :cool: is this something I dreamed about or was there really such thing. I'm pretty sure there was a fly called that. If I'm not mistaken it was named after someone's son.

Yes there was/is, and it was/is deadly especially later in the summer. Phil Brandt would be the inventor and named it after his son Rob. Phil posts here some.

Ok thanks Jim, I thought there was but didn't know if I was making something up or not. I'm pretty sure I remember what it looks like as well. Is this a secret still or do others know about it? If I recall when I found out about it, only a select few knew abut it.

Phil would have to post the pattern since it his creation, I wouldn't want to step on his toes.
