Another classic for the spring fly box

Posted by Steve Galea at

Here's yet another pheasant tail nymph that I tied today. I'm nearing somewhere around three dozen in the last few days. PT nymphs are a great fly to tie and fish. If I could have one nymph pattern in my fly box, this or the gold-ribbed hare's ear would easily make me happy. 

I won't go into the recipe because it's so well documented, but I will say that if you are relatively new at tying, this is a useful and fairly simply pattern to learn. Oh, and it's also an inexpensive one since the materials are pheasant tail, fine copper wire, peacock herl and brown thread along with the hook.  Carry this in sizes 14 to 10 and you can't really go wrong.
