Pheasant tail

Here we will be tying my version of the famous fly Pheasant tail by mr. Frank Sawyer. The fly is classic nymph, really effective and probably the most popular nymphs in Icelandic trout fishing among with the Peacock nymph. The fly is a great option for both stream and lake fishing. The fly catches both brown trout and arctic char. Simple to tie and totally worth to keep few in your box when go fishing!

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.
