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?
