This is my first time back at the vise in 7 years. Figured I would try the PT Cruiser Pheasant Tail Nymph. I know my portions need help but I was happy to back at the bench!

Looks fishy to me. Try that with a purple thorax also.

Looks good to me but, like Gene, I'd go with a smaller bead.

You've given me a reason to tie some more PT nymphs. I really dig the hot spot with flash. Should pick up a fish or two.

Thank you. I actually did make this first one with a bead bigger then I intended to. The rest of them have a size smaller bead.

I'd fish that fly any time. Guess tying is like riding a bicycle. You never forget.

 

Again, nice fly.
