Davey McPhail Sawyer Style PT nymphs
Hi friends, this is a Frank Sawyer fly pattern variation that I've fished for many years. Davey McPhail has an excellent video showing the tying steps here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ogp5F7bmVcA&t=0s
I tie them the same way Davey does in pheasant-tail to imitate mayfly nymphs but also in turkey-tail to imitate the small early stone fly nymphs here in NY. They are fast and easy to tie using just XS or SM Uni-copper wire along with your choice of tail material and a nymph #14 1XL hook.
