American Pheasant Tail Nymph

The PTN is one of the first flies I ever tied and so it holds a warm spot in my memories. There are a number of ways to tie the Americanized version of Frank Sayers PTN, and this is really close on how I tie my own. This tutorial has a ton of great images included and is quite clear in detail. Don’t forget to pull out you copper wire and pheasant tail to tie up a few of the originals as well. I like to add a bead to mine and in addition to this one, I add a couple with hott buttz, hot beads, and soft hackle versions.
