Flashback Pheasant Tail Fly

This fly tying tutorial features a fantastic nymph, the Flashback Pheasant Tail fly. This bead head pattern gets down to where the fish are and has more than enough flash to attract the attention of trout. Some will vary this fly by adding a hot spot to the head, though I feel that the flashback covered in UV glue is more than ample. Feel free to post your variations of this fly; the one in this video has pheasant tail dyed olive versus the natural color.

Featured in this fly tying tutorial are the W501BL wet fly hooks by Allen Fly Fishing; these are excellent hooks that are useful for a variety of patterns. Check out those hooks and more at the following link:

Thanks for viewing the tying of this fly; feel free to leave comments/questions on this YouTube page, or email me:
