Versatility of a Phesant Tail Nymph


I was looking in my mayfly nymph box today and noticed all the different variations of the pheasant tail nymph I carry. So It got me thinking is there a more versatile nymph than the pheasant tail nymph. Here are examples of the pheasant tail nymph I carry in my fly box.

Standard PT nymph natural
Sizes 16 thru 20


Standard PT nymph olive color
Sizes 16 thru 20


Standard PT nymph black color
Sizes 16 thru 20


Stand PT nymph black/red color
Sizes 16 thru 20

Soft Hackle PT nymph
Sizes 16 and 18


Flash Back Bead Head PT nymph natural
Sizes 16 and 18

Red BH PT Nymph
Sizes 16 and 18

Mercury Bead PT nymph
Sizes 16 thru 20

The question is can a person carry to many pheasant tail nymphs?
Is there a more versatile nymph than the Pheasant Tail Nymph?

  1. My favorite PT nymph is a #16 FB BH PT nymph.

    I also like it in #18. I have rocked a ton of fish with these.

  2. Try a purple PT nymph,with a black bead,purple peacock thorax,and purple wing case works great for me in heavy fished waters.
