Frank Sawyer's Pheasent Tail Copper Nymph


Product Information

Frank Sawyer's  Pheasent Tail Copper Nymph,

The Pheasant Tail Nymph suggests all sorts of real trout food throughout the season. The standard pattern developed by English River Keeper Frank Sawyer, uses the butt ends of the Pheasant to build a wing case. A useful variation is this fly tied as a gold bead head. Frank did not try to suggest legs in his design as he had observed that nymphs tuck them in when swimming. He devised the pattern for use on the River Avon in Wiltshire in Southern England. it quickly became world famous. Frank's book 'nymphs and Trout' first published in 1958 describes the method of tying and fishing the nymph. The main theme in all of his patterns is simplicity. Franks wife was an expert fly tyer. For years she supplemented his earnings by producing batches of  Pheasant Tail Nymphs for sale to anglers
