    Stunning Pheasant Tail - 2/5/2015
    By: from Henderson, NV

    I joked to my father (an experienced fly tier) that I tied this fly. He said that if I were to one to tie this fly I would be one of the best fly tiers in the world. The quality is Grade A.

    Just got home from my fishing trip here in norway(røros). First day we where after graylings, after seeing a caddie might be what was needed. Tied the flie on, and bam! 2 fishes in a row and 30 + later. Amazing quality flie is still almost fine after that many fishes :).

    Classic fly that gets alittle deeper. No need to add split shot.

    Works on the Big Horn River, MT. - 7/25/2012
    By: from Prior Lake, MN.

    I have been using this fly very successfully for over ten years on Big Horn River near Ft. Smith, MT. A simple cast across the river and drift downstream to dead drift produces aggressive strikes. One word of caution, "Have good grip on your rod and forget the 7X. If nothing is hatching try it. Keep the salad off your fly.

    Water has been very high this spring here in Maine. Tried this fly for the first time last Friday on a small stream. Got 6 nice Brookies on it in a matter of hours. Fish love it and now so do I! As usual product is great quality.

    Nice for deeper pools or fishing light tail waters or roll cast under low hanging trees seems to do very well

    BH Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail - 10/4/2010

    Great pattern for both off-colored water as well as for fishing faster water. I have been able to get fish to take this deep, as well as nearer the surface. The hackle is gone after 2 or 3 fish as they'll rip it off there during the fight, but you're still left with a pretty solid Pheasant Tail after. Could be more durable, but still a great pattern.
