Here is the Step by Step Fly Tying Pattern guide for the Sandy's Straggle Pheasant Tail Nymph flies based on the original PTN by Frank Sawyer. This is a deadly advance on the original Pheasant Tail Nymph with its use of Straggle String Micro Chenille for tying the thoraxes. By using Straggle String with its amazing micro size and UV flecks it looks like a genuine nymph with lots of legs from the UV. It is a deadly fly on both the river and lake and has accounted for many trout. If you need help on proportions check our ideal nymph fly tying proportion guide

The recommended materials pack contains a pack of the Steelhead Mixed Straggle String which contains Black and stunning fluorescent colours to create a range of deadly hot spots for this Pheasant Tail Variant, you can see the variations we sell at the bottom of this page.

Step 3

  • Catch the Nano Silk on the hook shank at a position between the barb and hook point.
  • Tie in 3 pheasant tails using Nano Silk allowing the pheasant tails to extend to an equivalent of approx two thirds of the hook shank length.

Step 4

  • Wind the pheasant forward two thirds the way down the hook shank
  • Tie off the Pheasant Tail with 2 loops on Nano Silk
  • Wind the copper wire forward in large loops over the pheasant tail, secure with 4 wraps of Nano Silk then simply pull the copper wire from side to side until it snaps..

Step 5

  • Tie in Nano Silk at point where you broke the copper wire.
  • Take a bunch of pheasant tail fibres (5 to 7 should be sufficient depending on the hook size) and tie these in to the point at which you broke the copper wire.
  • At this point tie 1 strand of straggle string
  • Wind the straggle string to created a thorax and tie off behind the eye
  • Leave room for the head and cut off excess
