Learn to tie the Tim Wade North Fork Special

Learn to tie the North Fork Special, a fly designed by Tim Wade owner of Cody, Wyomings North Fork Anglers. We use this nymph quite a bit in the Black Hills. The North Fork Special makes a nice lead fly in a two fly nymph rig. It is heavy enough to eliminate the need for split shot in many fishing situations. This variation, tied by Ryan Gabert, has a gold bead and black biots. Tim Wade’s original North Fork Special uses a silver bead and gray biots.

An alternate version of the North Fork Special is tied with tan biots for tails and legs, and a tan dubbed body. In addition, the tan North Fork Special features turkey wing fibers for a back over the abdomen. Turkey Wing Fibers are also used for the wing cases on the tan version of the North Fork Special.

Hook: Tiemco 2457 size 10-16
