Reload your fly box with these Pheasant Tail Nymph - 2 Pack options! The fly is a modernly sparse adaptation of the lean nymph first tied in 1958 by Frank Sawyer, a riverkeeper in England who is arguably the father of modern-day nymph fishing. To this day the Pheasant Tail Nymph remains as one of the best nymphing patterns ever tied onto a hook. The wire ribbing creates a segmented body while adding a bit of attractive sub-surface flash and durability. That durability is key as the Pheasant Tail Nymph acts as a terrific imitator for all sorts of mayfly nymphs which trout gorge themselves on under the water. Offered in a range of sizes so that you can take this pattern with you every time you go fishing – trout will hit it but your job is to find the right size they prefer at that moment (and we all know every day is different). Stock up on these Pheasant Tail Nymph - 2 Packs!
- Use for brown trout, brook trout, rainbow trout, steelhead, and more
- Mimics mayfly nymphs in general, which can appear all year long; is a near duplicate in color and profile for the Blue Winged Olive Nymph
- Technique: sift through gravel to find naturals and match the size as closely as you can to your Pheasant Tail Nymph; cast upstream into fast current, let it sink, and then either lift the rod tip or even draw in the line to copy a nymph's rising motion up through the water column from the streambed to the surface; try a form of this method in stillwater found on lakes and ponds as well
