Pheasant Tail Catgut Nymph

The pheasant tail nymph is probably the most (or top 3) most popular nymphs in fly fishing. It is simple, effective, and mimics a wide range of trout food. I'm not trying to re-invent the wheel on this, just a swap on some materials to add some simplicity while maintaining the effectiveness.
