The Bead Head Pheasant Tail Nymph - 2 Pack offers a variation on what may be among the top five fly fish patterns ever devised. More than a dead-ringer profile for a Blue Winged Olive nymph, the Pheasant Tail Nymph also works when other mayfly nymphs abound. The bead head and copper wire match well as a combo to rocket the streamlined fly through strong winds. Cast the Bead Head Pheasant Tail Nymph upstream into fast currents to reach trout feeding beneath the surface. The bead head acts as more than weight as it also tricks trout into seeing it as a tiny gas bubble that nymphs gather for buoyancy to aid them to the surface. The pattern is durable and works well even after multitudes of fish have taken it. Is it time to add more of this proven pattern to your fly box? We say yes! Go ahead, you know you'll use this Bead Head Pheasant Tail Nymph - 2 Pack!
- Use for brown trout, brook trout, rainbow trout, steelhead, and more
- Mimics mayfly nymphs in general; is nearly an exact duplicate in color and profile for the Blue Winged Olive Nymph
- Technique: if you see fish darting around, they are most likely feeding upon mayfly nymphs; cast upstream into the current of fast water with a strike indicator; fish it just above or bounce it on the streambed; allow to flow with the current and lift up the rod tip gently as the line straightens below you to make the Bead Head Pheasant Tail Nymph act like a rising natural
