Sawyers Pheasant Tail Nymph - Tied with Parawire

Thread – .32 gauge Brown Parawire
Hook – TMC 2302 or any Nymph hook
Size 12-18
Body – Pheasant Tail Fibers

1. Mash down barb and secure in vice.
2. Wind wire onto hook. I use a dab of super glue.
This helps me to keep my wraps tight.
3. Secure pheasant tail fiber with 1-2 wraps.

4. Wrap fibers around the wire (creating a rope),
then wind forward.

5. Build a thorax with the wire, and tie in
additional fiber then wrap forward.

6. Pull fibers over for wing case (Forward).
7. Bring wire back with one turn and
pull fibers back over the wing case.
8. Whip finish 2- 3 turns, clip excess fibers, and your done.
