Lawrie Nymphs

    These are  modernised versions of the nymphs shown in  “The Book of the Rough Stream Nymph”, by W. H. Lawrie.


  Lawrie stated that his nymphs were based on Skues nymphs, although it is obvious that he  modified them considerably, for example,  he added a back (a thin strip on top of the body) and trimmed the hackle, top and bottom.  I decided to simplify the patterns, by dropping these additions.

  They are basically Skues type nymphs, or if you prefer ‘Flymphs’.
