Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle
The Pheasant Tail Soft Hackle is a versatile fly pattern that imitates a wide range of aquatic insects, making it effective in many different fishing situations.
The pattern represents Baetis in the smaller sizes or small stoneflies in the larger sizes.
It often fished in the late spring and summer when the mayflies are most active and is tied to imitate all types of mayflies. The Pheasant Tail – Soft Hackle is a great fly when the mayflies are emerging or actively free floating in the current.
When a mayfly nymph is in the current, it spreads it’s legs out wide, floating helplessly. The pheasant tail wrapped around the hook makes the fibers stand up, giving it the appearance of having the gills on the body.
Usually available in the following hook sizes: 10 | 12 | 14 | 16 | 18 | 20 | 22 | 24
