Product Information

With barbless Inward point to secure fish for the fly fisher who is afraid of losing a fish with barbless hooks.

 The Gold Bead Pheasant Tail Nymph is a great fly pattern that has been on the angling scene since 1958

Originally conceived and tied by Frank Sawyer, an English River Keeper, the Pheasant Tail Nymph is one of the oldest of modern nymphs.

Frank devised the pattern for use on the chalkstreams of Southern England. He designed this nymph to imitate several species of the Baetis family, generally referred to as the 'olives'; it quickly became world famous.

Though it does not represent any specific insect, its overall shape and profile proves equally attractive to both brown and rainbow trout.

In streams and rivers, the Pheasant Tail can be presented below the surface if required, but it is at its most productive when allowed to sink close to the river bed on a dead drift and then gently raised in the water to imitate the behaviour of the natural insect.This behaviour of the fly stimulates trout to regard the fly as natural food, and to try to eat it, at which point the hook can be set. This technique has become known as the induced take and the development of this technique may be considered to be as important as the development of the fly itself.

In chalk streams and spring creeks trout often take up station at the most advantageous feeding position. Cast upstream and allow the current to present your Pheasant Tail in a natural manner. Alternatively, cast across the stream, allow the fly to sink, and as the fly approaches the feeding trout stop the line and allow the fly to rise in the water. Watch the trout if you can, or alternatively watch the tip of the fly line for any movement and, if seen, lift the rod tip and gently set the hook.
