It is a beautiful fly but in all my experiences with the PMD I have never seen any bigger than a #14 with the vast majority being #16 - #18. As soon as I heard the tier say he was going to use a #12 long shank hook I lost interest in watching the video. I lost interest because while it is a beautiful fly it has many steps and materials and while it would be relatively easy for a skilled tier to construct one on a #12 hook it will be much more difficult on a more typical standard length #16 nymph hook.

I have found a very effective, and much easier to tie, PMD nymph to be the split back style. There are numerous tutorials on YouTube.
