Ice Dub Pheasant Tail Nymph Fly Tying Video

Ice Dub Pheasant Tail

The Pheasant Tail Nymph is one of the most effective fly patterns in the world. It’s slender body and thorax represent a great variety of Mayfly nymphs. In this fly tying video we have added a new color of Ice Dub to this old stand by pattern. Have these in your box this winter in sizes #16-20 to imitate beatis and other developing Mayfly nymphs. Tie them in #12 and #14 for our annual March Brown emergence.

For more selective trout omit the bead or use a black one. Ice Dub from Hareline Dubbin is our go to dubbing these days. Offered in a huge array of colors and great to work with for nymphs and dries.–CD
