Whether you’ve already grown to love Frank Sawyer’s famed Pheasant Tail Nymph and need to get deeper in the water or just want to add something new to your nymphing box, the Bead Head Pheasant Tail Fly is a hard choice to beat. Taking the classic Pheasant Tail Nymph platform--a pheasant tail body, tail, and wingcase with a peacock herl thorax--and adding a gold bead, this nymph sinks quickly and has a little extra glimmer for those needing an attractor fly, but it also effectively matches a slew of mayfly nymphs and small immature stoneflies.
The Bead Head Pheasant Tail is a fly that you can rely on all year long, and it’s particularly effective in the spring through fall whenever mayflies are getting ready to hatch and their nymphs are especially active. The Bead Head Pheasant Tail can be fished like most other nymphs, whether worked into a Euro Nymphing setup, dead drifted under a strike indicator, or as a fly in a multi-nymph setup, and it’s a nymph that can handle fast currents just as well as stillwater environments. Pursuing native trout in small streams or just looking to load up on stocked fish, the Bead Head Pheasant Tail is a nymph that you’ll want on hand in a variety of sizes.
