PT7 Troutline Pheasant Tail nymph

2 No tags Permalink

PT7 Troutline Pheasant Tail nymph is simple to tie and effective in dark waters. What I like at this fly is the sparkle that can be seen very well by fish no matter how deep is the river or how muddy it is. I  use it in cloudy and rainy days  and for me is  a must nymph for these kind of conditions.

    Nice fly! Are the ‘legs’ just from the dubbing mix? Are there detailed instructions on how to tie this? I’m a beginner fly tier. thanks!

      Hi Robert, I’m happy that you like it. The tying process is simple, when you make the dubbing just use a dubbing loop, fix hare spiky dubbing or squirrel dubb. Twist it and with a few turns make the thorax. Use a small brush to arrange the thorax to look spiky and that is all 🙂
      Just a small hint: make the thorax as sparse as possible. If you put too much dubbing the fly will look fat.
