Classic Sawyers Pheasant Tail Nymph

Originally conceived and tied by Frank Sawyer MBE, an English River Keeper, the Pheasant Tail Nymph is one of the oldest of the modern nymphs.

Frank devised the pattern for use on the chalkstreams of Southern England. He designed this nymph to imitate several species of the Baetis family, generally referred to as the 'olives'; it quickly became world famous.

Our PTN is tied to our instructions as close to the original Sawyer ties as possible. Pheasant tail fibers and copper wire only, plenty of weight here. This classic generalist pattern replicates just about any nymph in the water column.  A proven fish catcher the world over.
