In this fly tying tutorial, I show an easier version of the fish-catching nymph, the Copper John. In this version, I incorporate some characteristics of the Pheasant Tail, ala Frank Sawyer, hence the more appropriate name may be the Copper John & Frank!

The pattern that I show is not the original; instead, this is a variant that will be easier for beginning fly tyers to tie. The body is over-sized and adds some additional weight to get the fly on the bottom immediately. Once familiar with the process and steps, feel free to move onto the actual pattern, found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMGE9F...

Thanks go out to Allen Fly Fishing for the use of the W501BL 1xl nymph hook; this is a great hook for this nymph and many more. Be sure to check out their great website: http://www.allenflyfishing.com/w501bl...
