Callibaetis Nymph

Callibaetis Nymph
5x7, soft pastel

Callibaetis are adaptable to extremes and can be found throughout the West in desert ponds, roadside ditches, rivers, streams, lakes and even tidal marshes 365 days a year. They thrive best in waters where trout are also found making them a favorite for trout and fishermen/women alike.   This nymph is all decked out with extra "flashabou" (love the name of those sparkly strands). 


  1. I love your nymphs! They stand out to me on the page of paintings everytime!

    1. Thanks so much Jamie! I truly am "hooked" on fishing flies (pardon the pun). 😄
