Bead Head Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail Wet Fly - 2 Pack
A Bead Head Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail Wet Fly - 2 Pack is a great selection, especially in the early spring when streams and rivers tend to run high and are a bit off-color. Productive into the early summer as it is a good caddis imitation. When fished in the right size, the pattern will produce no matter if the hatch is a mayfly, caddis, or stonefly. There really is no need to add a split shot to get this bead head soft hackle wet fly into deeper currents. The soft hackle can trap air bubbles and impersonate a nymphal shuck that the insect is desperately trying to rid itself, and trout feast on insects at this stage! The Bead Head Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail is a wet fly angler favorite because it is both easy to fish and produces aggressive strikes on the swing! If no insect is breaking the surface in higher and darker waters, always try this fly to get down to the sub-surface feeders. You'll do well to hang onto your fly rod when fishing with one from this Bead Head Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail Wet Fly - 2 Pack!
- Use for brown trout, rainbow trout, brook trout, landlocked salmon, and bass
- Mimics a variety of hatching insects, especially most mayflies and caddis, that are rising from a stream or river bottom while in the process of shedding their nymphal shucks
- Technique: there are several methods – cast forward or slightly upstream and let the Bead Head Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail Wet Fly sink as close to the bottom as you dare, then actively retrieve as the hackle motion can cause strikes; fish as a wet fly by quartering down and across where fish often hit in the middle of the swing; or, cast upstream and let it ride with the current and fish as you would with a nymph, twitching the rod tip periodically after the line straightens below you to make the fly act like a caddis or mayfly struggling to escape its shuck
