Pheasant Tail Nymph Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Pheasant Tail Nymph is the most versatile mayfly nymph ever invented. The Pheasant Tail can be tied large or small, fished deep or in the film, and used every day of the year.  The Pheasant Tail can be tied with or without a bead.  Just personal preference on which way you choose.  The Pheasant Tail can be tied as small as #24, for #18 and smaller a TMC 100 Hook is recommended.  When in doubt just tie on a Pheasant Tail Nymph!
