Tarcher Pheasant Tail

Tarcher Pheasant Tail Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Tarcher Style Pheasant Tail is tied on a Gamakatsu C12u Hook.  This gives the fly “implied” movement.  Meaning the fly appears to be wiggling and moving, even on a stationary hook.  The Tarcher Pheasant Tail can be tied in many different ways.  It can be tied upside down, to the side and everything in between.  I like to tie mine on the side (as seen in the video).  The Tarcher Style is just a different take on the traditional pattern, and very effective on trout as well!!
