The feather duster nymph was developed by Wally Eagle here in West Yellowstone in the 70's. He always said "it is a fish getter". As the name says it was originally tied with a real feather duster. It is particularly effective as a callibaetis nymph on Hebgen lake. It is also a great general mayfly nymph pattern for the rivers. Arrick
