    Default 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.
    Thanks

    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?
