'Euro Nymphing' has become a very popular term amongs fly fishers all across the globe during the last couple of years. At the same time as these different tight line nymphing techniques (e.g. Czech Nymphing, French Nymphing, Spanish Nymphing etc.) evolved, new flies and new interpretations of classic nymph patterns arose too. Due to new tying materials like jig hooks and tungsten beads it is finally possible to present small flies in fast current to Trout and Grayling feeding close to the bottom. A big advantage on many rivers!
In this tying video we show you a modern variation of the classic Pheasant Tail Nymph: The 'Purple Glo Brite Pheasant Tail Jig'. This nymph needs little material and can be tied in many different color combinations. It works excellent in dusty water, cold water and when targeting big Grayling. But also for Trout this pattern is a fantastic choice and a must-have in any fly box. The clou is a hot spot made from Glo Brite and a CDC hackle, which moves nicely in the current.
