FROM THE TYING BENCH

Going to fish my local dam again tomorrow and needed some more Pheasant tail nymphs, so I tied up a few tonight. These little flies worked well  some time back as they sink fast. I fish them on the dam with a long 5x leader on a floating line. I just let the line drift in the wind and give it the occasional twitch.

With the dams water being so clear at the moment I also love to cast them to cruising fish. You can often spot the fish turning toward the fly if you get the fly in its path.

BEAD: Gold tungsten
BODY: Pheasant tail
THORAX:  Peacock Hearl
THORAX COVER: Medallion sheet
