Sandy's Straggle String Pheasant Tail Copper

The perfect buggy river nymph. With its straggle string thorax Sandy Dickson has managed to take the Sawyer Pheasant tail one step further to a more 'buggy' nymph than the original. Straggle String thorax's give the appearance of legs and its colours act as an extra attractant, the copper straggle string looks natural and works well with the pheasant tail to give that natural coloured nymph with a lighter under-body with the thorax & legs an even bigger attraction.

Sandy designed these flies when he started looking at Semperfli Straggle String. With it's ultra fine body it wrapped around the hook and provided the perfect base for Sandy's version of the original Sawyer Orange Spot Pheasant Tail. Sandy said pheasant tails were one of his preferred river nymphs but he had always wanted to improve on them and make them both more 'buggy', giving the appearance of legs and using colours to attract and stimulate bites.
