Sawyer's Pheasant Tail

Step by step instructions for Frank Sawyer's classic.  The pheasant tail nymph has spawned countless variations but the original remains a firm favorite of many.  This fly is very simple, requiring only 2 materials but causes problems for some, hopefully this video will help.  Follow me on twitter or instagram @flickinfeathers for more fishing content.
Materials Used
Hook:Nymph hook 16-20
Thread: fine redish copper wire
Tail/body/thorax cover: pheasant tail fibres
