Mohawk Hotspot Pheasant Tail Nymph

This pattern is from Justin Aldrich and was featured on JStockard's blog in May 2018. This variation of the Pheasant Tail Nymph (#PTN ) incorporates a unique hotspot, taking advantage of some seldom used real estate over top of the tungsten bead.

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
