Pheasant Tail - Orange
Pheasant tail feather is a beautiful natural material that has many uses in the fly tying world. With its barbules about 3-5 cm. long you can tie the classic Pheasant Tail nymphs such as the Nymph Pink Pt. and the Pt. Spot Red, where you can see the use both to make the tails, and to make the body by wrapping them around the shank of the hook and reinforcing the resistance against trout teeth, using copper wire tinsel. In addition to Color Wire, the reinforcement tinsel can be made with materials that also give reflections to the artificial, an example can be seen in the Nymph Jig Pt. Hare where the tinsel is the Pearl Tinsel Small. You can also tie tails and bodies of dry flies, spider and wet flies like the Spider R.T. Special Grayling. The fibers of these feathers are extremely imitative, in fact they can also be used to make terrestrial legs, sedge wings and antennae, wing cases of emergent and pupae. A classic example of a pheasant wing case can also be seen in the Nymph White Black. Taking only the ends that end in a point, you can also make the lateral wings that come out of the thoraxes of the nymphs between the dubbing as in the Copper John dressing, or in the classic pheasant nymphs. They can also be used as an alternative product to tie small streamers. They combine very well with other natural materials such as hare mask or partridge feathers and peacock, as well as with synthetic materials that give them beautiful reflections such as Fine Flash Back, Fine Diamond Dubbing, Glossy Pearl and others. The fibers can be reinforced during assembly by putting a drop of glue on the shank of the hook before wrapping them, or when using them to tie the wing cases you can put a drop of UV glue on top of them once they are fixed.
