Drawing inspiration from one of the most popular nymphs around, the Pheasant Tail Nymph, the Tungsten Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail Fly is just what you need whenever you’re looking to add some depth to your soft hackle presentation. Perfect for imitating emerging mayflies and even some caddis pupa when you find yourself in a pinch without the right fly, the Tungsten Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail can be swung through riffles or just dead drifted, and with a tungsten bead thorax, you can count on this fly sinking well.
While you can get away with using this fly at any time of the year as a searching pattern, it excels whenever you find naturals emerging, so it’s a safe bet to carry from the beginning of spring through fall. Since it doesn’t imitate any exact insect, it’s important to carry this fly in a few different sizes with 14-16 being the most popular. Whether it’s a PMD hatch on the Bighorn or a Sulfur hatch on the East Branch of the Delaware River, the Tungsten Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail Fly is a safe bet.
