Very Nice! I like the idea of the Pheasant Tail for a tail. I have been using the guard hares from the rabbit skin I use.

Now what have you got in a Prince Nymph? They are my two favorite flies.

Hi Joni,
Thank you for your complements the pheasant tail works good you just leave it long to tie your wing case kinda killing 2 birds with one stone I tie it in a parachute style as well will get some pics. up later.
The Prince nymph is a great pattern works great in my area as well I have a few here I will take some pictures and get them on .

Hello Streamcaddis,

Thank you for your complement tying has always been fun for me ever since the age of 12 and a good way to pass those cold winter hours. Had a few good teachers along the way as well such as Earnest Shwiebert, Don Bayler to name a couple.

Using the pheasant tail reduces your time at the vise as you tie in the entire fiber and use it for the wing case as well thus saving time tying these guys up. And it looks great as well once you get it down you can tie a bunch of quality fly's in no time.
