The Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear and the Pheasant Tail are highly effective and versatile fly patterns, known for their ability to imitate a wide variety of aquatic nymphs.
The Pheasant Tail Nymph was first created by English river keeper Frank Sawyer in the 1950s and has since become a staple in fly boxes around the world. Its effectiveness lies in its natural appearance and subtle movement in the
water. The fly is typically tied with fibres from a pheasant tail
feather for the body and tail, which give it a realistic, buggy look.
The slender profile and neutral colours of the fly allow it to mimic a
wide range of insects, making it a versatile choice in many fishing
situations. Read our suggestions for sunny with cold water temperatures for one particular condition they can excel in.
