The Story

Tied fuller and incorporating peacock herl and natural pheasant tail, these bead head stonefly nymphs close the gap between the large, traditional stonefly nymphs, offering smaller varieties of effective patterns. Fish these stonefly nymphs along with their larger cousins to offer a double enticement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to Fly! I caught a 3 pound brown trout at the Orvisday fly fishing school on the Platte river in Colorado using a BH pheasant tail fly. I recommend this fly when conditions are difficult!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Worked! All that I had was a spin casting rod but I tied a loop in my line 18 inches above the nymph. I used the loop to secure a small piece of bark from a cotton wood tree. With enough weight to cast I pitched it into the stream and floated it through the riffles. I landed many rainbow trout and a beautiful cutthroat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy This fly allowed me to catch the most trouts in one trip in my life. I caught seven brown trouts minimum 10 inches and 4 brook trouts minimum 11 inches. One of these flies lasted me the whole day and when I looked at it after I was done it was in perfect condition.
