#10 RFSN

I want to try fishing tandem nymph rigs this year for smallmouth bass.  Normally I fish streamers for smallmouth because they flat work, but I've read larger nymphs can be just as if not more effective.  What better place to start this experiment than with a #10 Red Fox Squirrel Nymph.

Tail: RFS Guard Hairs
Abdomen: My own special blend of RFS belly fur and some bling
Thorax: RFS back hair
Collar: India Hen Back
