How to tie the Iron Thorax Nymph. A version of the Pheasant tail nymph originated by Rocco Fasone. We discovered it in the Solitude Flies Catalog. Very effective pattern tie in natural pheasant with a red thorax, olive pheasant with olive wire, and black pheasant with blue wire. We substituted Fluoro Fiber for the pheasant tail legs of the original. Many versions of the pheasant tail nymph have included copper wire as a thorax, including the original tied by Frank Sawyer.
