Many of you are probably familiar with the Pheasant Tail Nymph. The PT Nymph was invented by the late Frank Sawyer, an English river keeper and renowned fly tyer. He's grouped alongside the fly tying greats such as Lee Wulff, Al Troth, and Dave Whitlock. Over on the forum, we are tying another fly of his, the Sawyer's PT Nymph for week 22. After watching this video, I thought I'd share it. The footage was shot in the 50s and is the only known footage of Mr. Sawyer tying the nymph. You can't hear him talking, but regardless the video is worth watching.
