Number 12 in the fly tying for beginners series is a basic Perdigon nymph. These are great little nymphs for Czech, French and other European style nymphing. You can make them more complex if you want to by adding a rib, quill body or flashback etc. but you'll catch plenty of trout and grayling on the simplest versions.
