Pheasant Tail Nymph
Anglers and trout love the Pheasant Tail Nymph. This fly works all year, on just about any freestone trout stream in the Eastern United States. The Pheasant Tail pattern replicates many mayflies found in these streams and rivers.
We rank this fly in the top ten sub-surface collection either with a gold bead or without one for fishing in the Southern Appalachians and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This version, without the bead would be a better choice than the beaded version in low and clear water conditions. This nymph should be fished weighted by adding a piece of split shot to your tippet a few inches above the fly.
The Pheasant Tail Nymph is one fly you should certainly have with you on the stream, especially freestone streams. This is a year-round fly.
