PH (Pheasant Tail) Jig

leave a comment »

Not as colourful as my last set of flies, but an effective small heavy nymph for fishing in close. So what we have is simply:

  • TMC C-Jig Hook Size 14
  • Tungsten Bead Haed
  • Tail and Body – Pheasant Tail Fibers
  • Upper – Peacock Herl
  • Copper Rib
  • CDC Hackle

PH is a standard in fly-fishing, but I have added a CDC Hackle and put it on a jig hook with a heavy bead, so as it can get to the bottom of the stream quickly.

Changes and variations: One size smaller and eliminate the CDC at this point.

And since, the fly fishes hook up, I present it to you this way.
