Nymphs

It is often claimed that the highest percentage of fish taken on flies are taken on nymphs. Trout spend most of their time on or near the bottom feeding on natural nymphs, larvae, crustaceans, and whatever else happens to float or swim by. Consequently, nymphs should be the most important fly in your fly box.
