Classic Sawyers Pheasant Tail Nymph
Originally conceived and tied byFrank 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.

Being a new customer to Epic, I purchased as a trial several nymphs, emergers and Deer Tail Sedges. Selecting the product on the site was very easy and the products I selected were supported with reviews, which is always a huge help. The Sawyers Pheasant Tail Nymph I had the opportunity to fish with on the Twizel River and produced for me two great rainbow trout. I fished the remainder of the day with the same nymph, which had held together and had not fallen apart after landing the two Rainbows. In fact it is back in my fly box for another day. The confirmation of my order was prompt as was delivery. Merry Christmas!
