Challenged Mayfly Emerger – Pheasant Tail
The Challenged Mayfly Emerger – Pheasant Tail is a popular fly pattern used by anglers for trout fishing. It imitates the emerging stage of a mayfly, when it is vulnerable to feeding trout. The pattern incorporates a pheasant tail nymph body and a CDC (Cul de Canard) wing for added buoyancy and realism.
This pattern can be fished as a dry fly or as a nymph, depending on the stage of the mayfly hatch. It is especially effective when fished in slow-moving or still waters, where trout are likely to be feeding on emerging mayflies.
Usually available in hook sizes 2, 14, 16 and 18.
