Golden pheasant - material question

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!

I asked myself that - 11 years ago:




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...

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,...

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).
