Those OTHER pheasant feathers

This is the link to the Garthside article on pheasant feathers http://www.jackgartside.com/art_pheasant_feathers.htm

 

The other article by Terry Heleckson I can't get to, as his daughter is redoing the page and it's not back up yet.

Some great stuff on that Gartside page, thanks for sharing it! There's another streamer I made from an old recipe I found online that uses the rump feathers layered down the side, a thick tail of black hair, red floss for the body, and significant weight. I forget where I found the recipe and what it is called, but the streamer caught several Browns the first time out so I keep using it.

Maybe the fly you tied is part of the New Zealand Killer Series....the Mrs. Simpson......
