This is one of the few Pheasant Tail patterns I tie. I admittedly have never been a fan of the PT Nymph. I know, calm down, I get the same reaction from most of my fishing partners as well. It's just that over the past 50+ years the PT and I have never bonded. But when I do tie them, its in the form of this emerger pattern. I was down to 6, so I bumped the count back up to an even dozen.
