View Full Version : Lets see your Tellicos

Been wanting to get better at some traditional Southern Appalachian patterns so I've been working on the granddaddy of Southern nymphs, the Tellico. I would like to see how everyone ties theirs and any little tricks or variations on this classic fish-getter.

Here are a few variations that I tie.

Nice setups, Granny. I like the Blackburn in the middle!

Hugh Hartsell has/had a great Tellico Nymph on his website. In the past, before I started tying, I'd buy some from Hugh & Caroline. Very effective fly in my experience.

Nice! Do you coat the "shellback" feathers with anything or just leave them natural?

i have coated some using clear nail polish. i did not have any turkey and was substituting with pheasant tail.
