How to tie the Inverted Pheasant Tail nymph, a simple step by step fly tying tutorial for everyone, including beginning fly tyers. As our streams become more crowded, having flies that are a little different than what everyone else fishes can make the difference. This nymph features an added touch to show legs and a wing case as it bounces along on a jig hook. This version of the Pheasant Tail is a little different, and I have seen where having a fly that is a little different than what the fish typically see has been very effective for me. This fly tying tutorial features all the easy steps to produce this fly. This fly tying video features one of the nymph patterns that I have modified for pressured trout.

This fly tying video pattern instruction features a simple materials- pheasant tail and peacock herl on a jig hook. Simple stuff for a very effective pattern. If you watch the video to the end, you will be able to tie this very productive fly, and even beginners will be able to do so.

I am an outdoor writer and photographer with fly fishing articles articles that have appeared in national publications including Fly Tyer, American Angler and Outdoor Life. His fly fishing books include: “The New York Fly-Fishing Guide (Amato Publications), “Warmwater Fly Fishing- Finding and Catching Warmwater Species), and his new book, “The Greats of Adirondack Fly Fishing.” My new book explores the lives of six anglers who shaped fly fishing in New York’s Adirondack Mountains, including their fly patterns.

I am a lifelong fly fisherman and fly tyer since age 7, I have fished extensively throughout the Northeast. I have also tied flies for the same amount of time and have created fly patterns for trout and warmwater species.

I have produced two fly fishing DVDs including “Tying. And Fishing for Smallmouth Bass,” and “Tying and Fishing for Panfish.”
