Pheasant Tail Nymph Var

Here is another piece of great tying footage from McA and the boys over at Rise Form. For this weeks Fly Tying Video, episode 40 we have the final installment of our wing shooting/fly tying segments with guest tyer Walt Young. This time Walt twists up a fantastic variation of the Pheasant Tail Nymph. The main differences between the modern PT Nymph and the one Walt ties, are the omission of copper wire ribbing on the abdomen, and the substitution of dubbing instead of peacock herl on the thorax. Looks like a killer, I would add a Nymph Head bead on this one as well to stack the odds in my favor.
