Miss Ring, feathers

Stream flies for sea trout and steelhead

An oldie pattern from GFF

By Martin Joergensen

The pattern

The ringneck phesant has a very beautiful skin with many useful feathers. It's inexpensive, and even though it's rarely used in well known fly patterns, it's a good investment. It can be highly recommended to any experimental fly tyer.

The feathers for Miss Ring are found on the lower back and rump of the skin between the wings. The large picture (right) shows most of a skin while the small picture shows where to look for the wings (upper small circle) and the false hackle feathers (lower, larger circle).
