Video: The Magic of Pheasant-Tail Fibers

Here’s the latest “One-Minute Fly-Tying Tips and Techniques” from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions. Each video will teach a single tying skill, from the most basic to the advanced. Ultimately, the series will serve as a sort of encyclopedia of tying skills that will be a valuable resource for anyone who sits down at a vise to create a fly.

In this video, Tim shows why pheasant-tail fibers are used on some of the sport’s most popular nymph patterns. You can create great imitations of mayfly-nymph tails, abdomens, legs, and even gills using this one material. Dyed versions make pheasant tail even more versatile.
