Tying a Tungsten BH Black Pheasant Tail Nymph Fly Pattern #PiscatorFlies

via IFTTT Here is another great quick pattern to help fill out your trout box. The more I fish jigged nymphs, the more I love them. Just the fact that they ride hook point up means I’m getting fewer false strikes and losing a lot fewer flies on the river bottom. I fished this pattern quite a bit in 2018/2019 in the Lake Ontario tributaries for the resident trout that live there.

A quick shout out to @brownsylvania for the nudge to share this little box filler. Please take a minute to check out his version in natural colors – https://youtu.be/xMk_62iX6gw
