Originally tied along the banks of Oregon's McKenzie river, and made famous on the Big Horn River in Montana, the Skinny Nelson is an unassuming, micro-nymph pattern that has proven the downfall of many a trout!  While a killer match for a number of small mayfly and immature stonefly species, the Skinny Nelson is particularly deadly during low water years and when targeting selective trout.  For a little extra weight to help get you down to the bottom of the river where the fish are most abundant, this variation of the Skinny Nelson has been tied with a beadhead.
