Tying a Mohawk Hotspot Pheasant Tail Nymph Jig

The Mohawk Hotspot Pheasant Tail Nymph is a fly design from Justin Aldrich (check out his channel here – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCa5G…) and was featured on JStockard’s blog in May 2018. This variation of the Pheasant Tail Nymph (#PTN ) incorporates a unique hotspot, taking advantage of some seldom used real estate over top of the tungsten bead. I’ve used a hot pink floss for my demo flies, but any hot color that contrasts with the bead should work well. Try a black bead with a chartreuse floss or a silver bead with purple floss.
