Chocolate Greedo Nymph

The Chocolate Greedo is a brown version of my¬† Greedo BWO. It’s a great imitation of a tiny BWO nymph. In late October, we took a trip out to the Smoky Mountains. After fishing a bit and finding fish taking small blue winged olive nymphs, I started fishing this little fly. I caught a beautiful 17″ wild rainbow on its first time out. We caught a lot of our trout that week on this fly.
