Tying the Faux Pheasant

Faux Pheasant



Following the previous blog on my Pheasant Tail Dubbing Blend, this is the fly in which the dubbing blend was originally designed for. Nothing new in design, as it is a pretty standard nymph pattern, but it's the "Pheasant Tail" variation I tie and reach for when times call for a pheasant tail nymph.
