Introduction Competent angler and naturalist Oliver Kite describes the Sawyer Nymph as one of the most effective nymph fly patterns ever devised Sutcliffe, T. Tying Steps Tying the Sawyer Nymph begins with covering the hook with copper wire. Beginning at the bend of the hook, wrap the wire back to about a hook eye width from the eye of the hook.
Lock the wire to prevent it from spinning. I use superglue. In even turns to wrap the wire to the point where the thorax will be constructed, build a hump, wrap wire back to the hook bend, and let it dangle. Tie in four peacock tail fibers so that the fine ends stand out about one-eighth of an inch from the hook bend.
Since I try to tie off my wire behind the wing case, you would need to make sure there is enough fiber to make three back and forth laps over the thorax. Spin the remaining pheasant tail fibers around the copper wire for reinforcement while lapping fibers and wire together around the hook shank forward to the hook eye. Hold wire firmly, separate the wire from the fibers.
