  1. The full back, flash back, bead head, Pheasant Tail (wow thats a mouthful)... Is a great fly! Everyone fishes the flash back pheasant tail, and there are many videos on youtube about how to tie them, but I have yet to find one as a full back flash back. I see these in fly shops all the time though, with the full flash back, but never seen people tie them. I find these full back versions do better when fish are spunky. The more flash on them actually attracts the aggressive fish more, especially on sunny days. I also like tying these heavy, with a bead head and some lead wraps, but you could omit this in your tie if you want. For me though, I like fishing these as my lead fly, something to get the fishes attention, then drop something a little more subtle behind it, even just a regular pheasant tail, or a simple zebra midge. Something without a bead. The extra weight of my lead fly tends to get the whole rig down deep fast, without the need for lead split shot, so it makes a healthier river and easier day on the water not messing with split shot.
  2. Here's a great pattern that I want to share with everyone. This is Tracy Peterson's Skinny Nelson, which I explain everything regarding it in the video. What I want to stress, especially for beginning tyers, is the second half of the video, where I go through a couple variations of the Skinny Nelson. Varying a fly can be difficult if you are just started @ tying, thus why I spent some time there. Enjoy! TC
