While there are no secret patterns that are guaranteed to catch fish every time you are on the water, the closest thing to it would be the Pheasant Tail Flashback nymph.  This generalist nymph pattern is close enough in color to a host of invertebrate species that - when fished in a number of sizes - can be used to effectively imitate almost any mayfly or stonefly nymph.  

Our pheasant tail nymphs are tied with beadheads to help them sink into the zone where the fish hold, and have flashbacks to help seduce the strike from reluctant fish.

    Flash back killer

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Feb 2021

    This fly is a killer on the lakes I fish. These look as good as any in my box, but durability is the key to this pattern. If they last more than four fish it’s a winner...we’ll see in April/May with ice off!
