The Pheasant Tail is one of the older and more venerable patterns in fly fishing, originally developed in England as a nymph. This dry fly is a useful prospector and according to one our reviewers very productive as a spinner or hatching mayfly. The parachute post makes the Pheasant Tail visible and the horizontal hackle lets the fly sink deeper into the film. Color, Natural.Fly in sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Review 1 for Parachute Pheasant Tail

" The Parachute Pheasant Tail has proved to be one of my "go-to" flies anytime I see trout rising. It has been especially effective when trout are sipping spinners in nearly any type of water. Flats, riffles, current seams, eddies, and even in rough tumbled fast water this fly has been hammered by trout. I have fished it mainly on the South Platte in Colorado and it seems to work best in the afternoon or evenings when there is a spinner fall or mayflies hatching. Thanks Orvis! I love this fly!"
