We bring these Super Sawyer PTN's to you courtesy of Stan @ Gourmet Flies.

These nymphs are an evolution of the Sawyers Nymph, with Stan's tweak. Frank Sawyer invented and popularised the pheasant tailed nymph with his 'sunken nymph' technique. Sawyer advocated the 'sink and draw' method of nymphing where the nymph was allowed to sink and then made to 'swim' towards the surface by drawing in the line or slowly lifting the rod tip. This was coupled with the 'induced take' where the nymph was made to swim up in front of a fish thereby inducing the fish to take. These nymphs are ideal for summer nymphing when the rivers are that bit lower - being made from glass beads they sink slowly and make ideal droppers for the Duo/New Zealand style of fishing.
