Pheasant Feathers for the Fly Fisherman
There are a lot of pheasant hunters that spend the spring and summer waist-deep in trout streams. For many, reading a stream’s ripples is akin to assessing grasslands for likely pheasant flushing locations. One such person is John Edstrom, PF’s Merchandise Manager and owner of Headwaters Fly Fishing Company.
This morning, John brought in some of his favorite flies made from pheasant feathers (pictured). Each of these five flies feature tail feathers from roosters and/or ruffed grouse John harvested over his pair of English setters, Chance & Jake.
Do you tie flies made from pheasants you shoot during the autumn?
