The soft hackle wrap on the Beadhead Soft Hackle Pheasant Tail adds another layer of realism to this already legendary pattern. As this nymph drifts through the water, the wet hackle wrap flutters and kicks like the legs of a swimming nymph.
Pro Tip: For extra action and realism brush some Frogs Fanny or Hign N Dry Powder Floatant into the soft hackle! This will coat the hackle in bubbles causing it to kick and flip down the river just like the legs of an insect in drift.

Since it’s Feb these won’t see the water for a while. This pattern takes a beating and just have to see how these hold up. Look good and a nice ty.
This fly is very "buggy" and catches fish on the drift, on the swing and on the lift. It's a go to second fly in my line of 3 in most of my rigs. Buy it.
Flies look great, are a great price and best of all catch fish!
