Nowadays, a nymph is probably the most popular fly bait. Studies led by ichthyologists confirm that about 90% of the food consumed by fish are organisms eaten in the depths of water, so the popularity of the nymph as bait is fully justifiable.
We can call all small lures imitating larvae of aquatic organisms as nymphs. Usually, these imitations are extremely effective and fill the boxes of today's fly fishing enthusiasts in both light and heavy versions. Similarly to streamers, the amount of materials available on the market allows us to tie nymph patterns using natural materials as well as synthetic, sophisticated imitations, often very realistic. Personally, I think that a good nymph is the one that resembles various water insects with its size, color and shape. However, very often, when tying and using nymphs, I diverge from the canons and experiment to create unusual but very effective flies adjusted to required conditions.
