Default Traditional Patterns by Jim Casada

Great article Jim. Being from the Tennessee side, its interesting to hear the history of fly patterns from NC.

Around 20 or so years ago, I crossed paths with a fisherman from NC while on Deep Creek. He shared with me a fly that he said came from the rubber material used in a factory somewhere in Western NC that was used in making vacuum cleaner hoses. He called it the Coffey Nymph. The tan-colored, rubber material was wrapped on a long-shank hook roughly size 8-10 with brown goose biots crossed on the front. Have you ever heard of this pattern and is there truth to the tale or was he handing me a "fish story"?
