Tied by: Dave Lomasney
Golden Pheasant wet fly popularized by Ray Bergman

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek 8xl #2
Thread: White 6/0
Tag: Silver flat tinsel
Tail: 2 slips of black duck quill sweeping up
Body: Orange floss
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Throat: Orange schlappen
Wing: 2 black hackles flanked by slightly shorter orange hackle
Shoulder: Golden pheasant tippet
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: The Golden Pheasant is a streamer conversion of one of the wet flies presented in Ray Bergman's 'Trout'. Dave keeps the original fly intact and achieves the conversion simply be tying the fly on a long shanked hook and adding a hackle wing to the lure. The orange hackle should be laid so that it is framed by the edges of the black hackle, giving a semblance of the golden pheasant tippet feathers.

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
