I have diddled and fiddled to produce decent damsel nymphs for some time now and it is tough to come with up something good either impressionistic or realistic. The one thought, when I watch them move in their environment,is always that they are very sparse predators. So whatever I tie, and it always seems to be an improvement over previous productions, is something slim. Good thing fish often are not too fussy.

What is this supposed to look like, example please.
