The Pheasant Tail Nymph is a fly that no trout fly fisher should be without. It can be tied with or without a bead head, with or without a flashback wingcase and with or without legs. The thorax can be peacock herl or any type of dubbing.
A great mid-size mid water fly – in sizes 1 to 6 and colours white over white, olive over white or tan and olive over shrimp.
Note these are great flies for all sorts of fishes – the white polar fibre goes fairly clear in the water and moves similar to the action of baitfish.
