    Here's a recipe that i found but it didn't have any picture.
    Quill Gordon - nymph
    hook Mustad 3906b
    hook size(s) 12-14
    thread gray 3/0
    tail wood duck flank fibers
    abdomen grayish-brown fur
    thorax dark gray fur

    Here's a picture off of Hugh Hartsell's site. (Hope he doesn't mind)

    I'd use a hare's ear nymph with a little orange tied into it.

    but the real question is why wold you want to fish a nymph for? Tie a size 10 quill gordon dry fly and hold on

    Did someone say #10 Quill Gordon DRY FLY? * * I exponentially agree!! I'm feeling warm and fuzzy all over!!!

    But I'm kinda biased like that. Just look at my handle!
