Standard Twinkle Tail™ Nymph
Here I’ve created a modification of an old standby: the Pheasant Tail Nymph. I call it a Twinkle Tailtm because I’ve included my proprietary Twinkle Dubbing(tm) into the thorax, along with either a brown vinyl wing-case, or a holographic flashback wing-case. Note on Hook Sizing: With this pattern I use a Tiemco 1x short shank nymph hook (#3769) for superior strength. My #18 fly = #20 standard dry fly hook in overall fly size.
