Bead head pheasant tail soft hackle

It's been a while since I put up a tying video.  Here's one of my favorite soft hackles.  I fish this as a dropper on a two nymph rig, as the dropper off a large dry, and as a wet fly.

  2. Nice video of a true classic, that tungsten bead really gets that fly down in the feeding zone. Thanks for the video.

  4. Mark, I am a little late getting here to leave this comment.............
    However, just wanted to say thanks for featuring this pattern. It has been a terrific pattern for me on the stream, and also, on the Bluegill pond.
