WATCH: Trouts Fly Tying - Tying Reece's Fusion Nymph with Bob Reece

Ivan Orsic / Feb 20, 2019

Umpqua Feather Merchants Signature Fly Designer and Guide Bob Reece dropped by the shop to tie one of his most productive signature patterns, Reece's Fusion Nymph. This buggy and versatile fly is a great fly in a variety of sizes and can imitate caddis and mayflies, alike.

Productive under an indicator, as the dropper in a hopper dropper rig and as an emerger, Reece's Fusion nymph flat puts fish in the net. Like any good nymph, the Fusion Nymph can be tied in a variety of sizes and colors to imitate a wide selection of aquatic insects.

Make sure to check out Bob on Instagram (@thinairangler) and at his website ( for more tutorials and tips.
