The Pheasant Tail Nymph is one of the most ubiquitous nymphs there is. Its dark brown color is useful for hundreds of mayfly species all of which are similar in their nymphal stage. This is one fly pattern you should have in all sizes. The great thing about this fly pattern is the addition of the tungsten bead that gets it down in a hurry to the feeding zone. For those who like to fish multiple mayfly nymph fly patterns, these are winners. Color, Pheasant Tail.Mayfly fly available in sizes: 12, 14, 16.

"This too is a great nymph pattern. The quality from the Orivs flies are consistent and reliable. I have caught many trout on this nymph, both bead and non-bead in sizes 14 up to 10.
"This nymph pattern is awesome. I use it on a dropper behind a foam hopper. It is great to use in mid summer. You should catch any species of trout with it. Also good for bream and bluegill."

"I was fishing at the falls in the center of Middlebury, VT for the first time... tried prospecting with a bead head prince, but changed to this fly... I had literally caught a dozen browns within the hour. It was the only thing they wanted. Also fished close by on another stream with a prince switched over to this fly and immediately hooked and landed an 18" rainbow. Outstanding fly."
