I like to tie nymphs, particularly with soft hackles. Sometimes I try to tie them with materials from only one or two birds (some exceptions are made for the dubbing and rib). The two bigger flies are tied only with assorted parts from a pheasant and a bit of turkey quill. The smaller are Pheasant with a marabou tail. The dubbing for the thorax is fluff from a pheasant crest feather.
