Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail Variations

Being one of the most popular nymphs of all time, naturally variations of Frank Sawyer's Pheasant Tail have become abundant. In this video, I share two variations of the Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail, and go into detail as to why the changes were made. These are both excellent patterns to fish throughout the water column, and two that I rely on frequently.

Featured in this tutorial are the S402BL hooks from Allen Fly Fishing; you can find those hooks and many more at the following link:

The GFF money box

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.
