Icy Pheasant Tail
Sometimes a fly needs to be "pimped out". The Icy Pheasant Tail is no exception. This mayfly nymph is tied on an AFF W502 (sproat-bend, standard-shank hook). Again, Allen Fly Fishing continues to create excellent hooks at an excellent price. Check them out at www.allenflyfishing.com
This particular fly follows the same tying principles of a traditional pheasant tail nymph but with some much deserved prism/ ice dubbing. Fish this fly in a tandem nymph rigging step up w/ indicator. Use it as the lead or trailing fly and you'll be sure to have success. Believe it or not, fish like pimped flies just as much as humans.
