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.
