Last year I was blessed with an insanely large supply of pheasant tails. Before this surplus of feathers, I conserved my PT feathers, and tied only #18 - #24 nymphs making sure never to waste one fiber. Now I've moved onto tying larger nymphs, and tying them in bulk quantities. I sampled a few patterns last season on our great lakes tributaries, and found some sizes and colors that worked particularly well for the big brown trout. Below are this years prototypes ready for action.

These nymphs are tied in the round, and are very quick to assemble. If you would like specific tying instructions just shoot me a line.
