Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail Nymph

It Catches Fish.  Period.

This fly really doesn't need much explanation because anglers have been using it for a long long time.  There are many variations of a soft hackle pheasant tail, and pretty much all of them have been used to fool trout.  They can be fished on an indicator rig, euro rig, dry dropper, or on a lake.  We got some really cool soft hackle hen capes from whiting in a color called Dark Brown Dun, which is dark brown on one side, and a nice gray color on the other side.  You can ultimately use whatever soft hackle material you want on these, but this color really matches well with the pheasant tail fibers.

In this video, you will watch Cheech break off materials enough to make Curtis warm up the bleep machine...  Word to the wise, get quality pheasant tail fibers so you don't have to swear like Cheech.
