While tying up a bunch more Pheasant Tail Wet Flies I tried tying a few with some synthetic peacock and synthetic pheasant tail I had bought a while ago. While there are MINOR differences when you look at the flies. Very minor in my opinion. My question is has anybody used these and how much different do they fish? Is there any difference under the water or above for that matter? For some patterns the synthetics are much easier to handle. I hate to say it but I actually prefer the look of the synthetic pheasant tail body.
Well, I aint always right but I've never been wrong.....
