Shop All of the Materials Needed to Tie the SBR Sulphur Nymph Fly
The SBR Sulphur Nymph Fly is inspired and designed to imitate the sulphur nymphs found along the south branch of the Raritan River in Western New Jersey. These nymphs are unique in both their colouring and size, which has been attributed to the different species present in the region.
