Kevin Hospodar just shared a great, new, fly tying tutorial. Here, he shows us how to tie a Pheasant Tail Catgut Nymph pattern. The steps are easy-to-follow.
“The pheasant tail nymph is probably the most (or top 3) most popular nymphs in fly fishing. It is simple, effective, and mimics a wide range of trout food. I’m not trying to re-invent the wheel on this, just a swap on some materials to add some simplicity while maintaining the effectiveness.”
Check out his video and try tying your Pheasant Tail Catgut Nymph.
To tie Kevin Hospodar’s Pheasant Tail Catgut Nymph, you need the following:
- Hook – Partridge Wet Heavy Supreme #10 (try HMG Hemingway’s HC113 Hooks)
- Thread – Lagartun 95D copper (try Hemingway’s 8/0 in Rusty Brown)
- Tail – Pheasant tail fibers (try Coq de Leon Feathers)
- Body – Catgut Biothread
- Thorax – Hemingway’s Deer Dubbing in Brown
- Wing case – Lagartun French flat braid (try Flashback Foil in Green)
