Jig Flashback Pheasant Tail Nymph

The Jig Pheasant Tail Nymph is a general nymph imitation that incorporates features of both the classic pheasant tail, originally tied in England by Frank Sawyer, and the American version, which uses a peacock herl thorax to increase the fly’s allure. Tied on a jig hook with a slotted tungsten bead, this modern variation of the classic may just be the most effective pheasant tail on the market. The tungsten bead gets the fly down fast while the barbless hook allows for easy hook removal. $3.25
