How to Make a Fly Fishing Nymph : Tools Needed to Fish with Pheasant Tail Nymphs

ALVIN DEDEAUX: So here are the materials we’re
going to need for our Pheasant Tail Nymph: Pheasant Tail, obviously, being the main ingredient;
also a peacock hurl; a hook, of course, since we are making a fly; copper wire for the ribbing;
some thread that matches the Pheasant Tail color we’re using, because the Pheasant Tail
comes in a lot of different colors. This is a natural color, but it also dyed a lot of
different colors. Our scissors, of course, for cutting our materials; pliers for mashing
down the barb on the hook; whip-finish tool for whip finish; and the vice, of course,
to hold the hook. So the peacock hurl is a cool fiber. It’s very translucent. It’s got
a lot of color and a lot of kind of shimmer to it. So that’s used in a lot of flies. It’s
the body section or the midsection of the Pheasant Tail Nymph. The Pheasant Tail itself
comes in a bunch of different colors. This is pretty much a natural color, and there’s
a lot of other dyed colors that are real similar to this natural color. You know, they might
be a little more reddish or a little bit more olive, you know, and then it also is dyed
in some pretty bizarre, you know, like bright red or, you know, some colors that don’t look
like anything natural, you know, a bright green or something like that. But this is
pretty much the typical or the standard.
