This pattern showed up at facebook on a double hook and I had to search it up and give the pattern a go. It is not exactly to the recipe I found since I had to substitute some materials, but the overal pattern is there.

Pheasant Tail Gold Head

dryfly.me.2014.05.03.pt_goldHook: Allen F-007 #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Black
Tail: Pheasant Tail
Body: Pheasant Tail
Thorax: Hareline Hare’s Ear Plus Chocolate Brown
Wing Case: Pheasant Tail
Legs: Mallard Flank
Bead: 3.0mm Tungsten Gold flysite.co.nz

Tying up some slightly longer and slimmer PT nymphs than I have tied up before. The legs on the side is a good visual clue and the gold head should get this down, but will make a version with lead in the thorax as well to make some even heavier.

 

Micro Pheasant Tail Nymph

Thorax: Pheasant Tail

Orivs.com had a article on micro pheasant tail nymph that popped up planet.dryfly.me, and I had to test out some of these in size 18 (above) and 24. The pattern itself is very simple: besides from thread you need pheasant tail and wire as rib, nothing more. The sizes from #18 down to #24 will be a great match for my #1 rod hunting trout in the smaller rivers here in Oslo.
