The common pheasant is undoubtedly one of the fly tying materials most used by the dressers of artificial flies, of the present and the past. The Semperfli Picric Pheasant Tail come from male pheasants from England, imported by the Romans in antiquity. With the fibres of the pheasant tail it is possible to create an infinite number of classic flies such as the many variants of March Brown and Sedges. At the same time they are very useful for making bodies and tails of modern nymphs, evolutions of the evergreen Pheasant Tail or Sawyer Nymph. Dyed with the Semperfli Picric Acid Dye, the common pheasant tail has a shiny appearance with a classic flavour.
