Re: Pheasant Tails

For several years, I did buy pheasant tails in various places, including (once) at a flower shop where the PTs were being used in floral arrangements.

Missing Dressings for Posted Flies

I've previously posted pics of some flies that I've done but did not include info as to the dressings / materials used. I tried to update them today but if anyone sees a posting of mine without the dressing, please let me know, ok? Thanks

what proportions of hare's ear/shrimp dub are you guys using.. that combo will definitely work in my neighborhood...
The dubbing I used was a variation of the Pink Squirrel nymph dubbing. Drop me a pm with your name and address and I’ll mail some of the dubbing to you.
