The Pheasant Tail Nymphs popularity is simply due to the effectiveness of the pattern. It was originated by Frank Sawyer who noted that the swimming nymph would fold its legs along its body when it swam. Mr. Sawyer would effectively jig this fly along to imitate the swimming mayfly nymph. This pattern is tied using Mr. Sawyers description, only using the copper wire and fibers from the pheasants tail.
