Parachute Pheasant Tail
The Parachute Pheasant Tail fly pattern is a popular fly pattern among fly fishermen. It is a variation of the classic Pheasant Tail nymph, but with a parachute hackle added for better visibility and floatation.
The fly has a visible and buoyant wing post, making it easy to see on the water. The pheasant tail fibers and body gives the fly a realistic look. This fly can be fished in a variety of ways, including dead drift nymphing, swinging, and even as a dry fly.
Usually available in the following hook sizes: 12 | 14 | 16 | 18
