Pheasant Tail Nymphs are one of the most popular nymphs in our flyboxes. For this reason these flies count for large numbers of fish being caught. For some reason fish love the three materials that are commonly used in the different pheasant tail variants, these materials are: of course pheasant tail fibers, peacock tail feathers and copper! They have a very fish-attracting “thing” to them. That’s why I love this fly. It has all the ingredients that I believe guarantee to catch some fish.
