    A little different look using hen tail (all tied on #16 Dai Riki 070)







    beadhead full flashback


    Soft Hackle (split thread)


    Although cock pheasant tail fibers have that special something, like peacock, the hen fibers are nicely marked and worth using.

    I like the bead head, both flash back and regular.

    I can't believe you've mutated a Teeny Nymph as you have :D

    Nice variations of a PT. I need to tie some of those with my shellback technique that I've gone nuts about :)
