Default Realistic Dragonfly Nymph

Many of you may have read my post about realistic flies, and me trying to find a good pattern for a dragonfly nymph, ( my goto fly when nothin' else works). Well after lots of searchin and not many patterns I thought worthy, I found a picture of a live d.f. nymph and designed my own. Took about 15 to 20 minutes to tie and I made 4, and I've already caught fish with them @ Lake John.

Thanks for checkin it out, Chadfish.

Yeah, I wasn't crazy about those rear legs being so long either, but all I could find to use were hopper legs.
