The Pheasant Tail nymph has remained one of the most consistent and effective nymphs throughout fly fishing history. The original Pheasant Tail is a no-frills recipe because it works. Inspired by a timeless design, Ken Morrish brought a breath of fresh air to the pattern we all know and love with RIO's Morrish Pleasant Tail. Multiple fishy colors are tied on the jig hooks that offer opportunities for fishing it under a dry, an indicator, or as a Euro nymph.
Pro Tip: Tying on RIO's Morrish Pleasant Tail with a loop knot comes in handy for soft and technical water situations.
The following are the bead sizes per hook:
Size 16 - 2.8 mm
