Hi guys!

I really like to tie with all feathers of the Golden Pheasant, except the nice small green-blueish-metallic one - I have no clue what to tie with them and what their name is. Can somebody here help me?
Thanks in advance!

Martin,

thanks for your answer, I hoped you know at least a dozen of flies I don't know. Wink But your fly is a good start for me! I tried something in the tail of "my" Golden pheasant shrimp but it didn't work well......but I'll try further on.

You can change the blue Pukeko feather on the top of a Craigs Nighttime fly with those feathers! This makes a fantastic fly for after dark.
Here is a link to a guides page that has a pic of a craigs night time on it.

All the best.

Hi Mike,

thanks for your answer. I asked Davie McPhail about these feathers and he replied, niceley (as ever), that the only fly he ties with this stuff is an Scotish wet fly: the 'Morton and Gold' (or silver).
