Green Spot Pheasant Tail

A quirky variation on the standard

pheasant tail fly pattern tutorial material list recipe

I was asked the other day about some of the patterns I'd found to be effective so far this spring. I rattled off a few patterns and then remembered several good fish that I'd taken on this nifty little PT variation. Nothing super-fancy, but a fun tie and it has a good little hot-spot. Plus, it incorporates some cool green dyed pheasant tail fibers.

Anyway, here's the skinny on it...
