Dry Pheasant Tail

The Dry Pheasant Tail Variant is one of the required fly patterns for the IFFF Bronze Level Fly Tying Skills Awards Program.
The fly is designed to imitate a blue-winged olive spinner, so I've tied this version of the fly with silver badger hackle. You can also use variant, golden badger or brown hackle to tie the pattern.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
