Fly Tying Pheasant Tail Nymph | Hackles & Wings

Hackles & Wings Fly Tying videos! Today we’re going to tie the Pheasant Tail Nymph, a variation of Frank Sawyer’s original pattern, going over a little bit of the history of this pattern as well as modern variations of it.
If you decide to tie your own variation, use #hacklesandwings or tag me @HacklesAndWings on Instagram, I would love to see them!
