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!
