Wolfgang, I think your PT looks fine.
I once stood next to Andy Burk while he tied one without thread.....just used the wire....in under a minute......
Now that's a guide tie. 3 steps.....Try it, just dub the wire.....
He said he was filmed by ESPN tying for the one fly contest in a minute.
You have one hour to tie as many as you can for the day. That's sixty flies in one hour..........
I called BS. he then borrowed a vice and we timed him. No BS.....
I like to tie them this way too now, because they weigh a just little more. Takes me about 3 minutes........I'm not Andy.

Jim

Hi Jim,

to tie the Pheasant tail only with the wire is the very old original way to tie it. You need three materials, hook - feather - wire.
We did it earlier for fun or training, only in the hand. I prefer the heavier pattern with lead or tungsten. Belive me, itīs deadly at the Bow river.

All the best, Wolfgang
