Pheasant tail killer bug

I was digging through some of Davie McPhail’s tying videos on his YouTube channel and came across this gem on tying three variations of a pheasant tail nymph. The last one is a killer bug variant that I’ve been trying out. Catches well and is fun to tie. A nice variant for all you killer bug fans!


@IHeartTenkara thanks for sharing this. These are really appealing to me. I whipped up a few and a couple variations with beads or hackle. I put some UV glue on the wing case just to toughen it up a little.


Dustin and Ryan, both of you did a super job on tying these flies. Many thanks for sharing these flies with us. They are really cool.
