Pheasant Tail

Pheasant Tail

This Pheasant Tail pattern is all season fly. This Pheasant Tail pattern imitates a broad range of food types for trout such as Blue Wing Olives, Caddis Emergers and Brown Mayflies. As such the method of fishing and the geographical fishing options for this fly are wide and varied.

Along with the Adam’s flies, this is an effective and general pattern that you must have in your collection, a range of hook sizes is essential. This Pheasant Tail pattern has its roots in Europe and its origins are very old. It can be used as a “prospector” fly and also in certain instances a spinner or even a hatching mayfly. 

When fishing any dry fly pattern, matching the color and the size to the hatch are critical.   Often overlooked is the casting of shadow from your leader, which may lead to spooked fish.   We suggest selecting a high float leader. Additional waterproofing can be given to you fly delaying it becoming waterlogged, by applying a flotant product such as Gink ®.

All flies are tied with American sourced materials including Hareline Dubbin Materials and Whiting Farm's Hackles & Capes and are tied on premium hooks.
