Pheasant Tail Variants

I’m continuing to tie flies with different colors.

As I wrote yesterday, I’m doing this for experimentation, but, also, to have something different to throw to pressured fish. “Variants” have been very effective (prior post here).

I think the ol’ Pheasant Tail is a great fly pattern. I like making them on barbless and curved competition-style hooks.

The recent batch includes ones made with orange pheasant tail fibers (the upper photo) and green ones (the lower photo). Size 16.
