My order of tungsten beads from flysite.co.nz came in over christmas, I have only had gold/silver/black beads before so this time I ordered in some additional colors to see how they turn out. The pheasant tail is very easy to tie up and is one of those patterns you should have available if you target trout. It is also a pattern you can vary a lot: this one is weighted with lead in addition to the tungsten bead, but you can make it slim, light, fat, long, small and vary in the dubbing for the thorax (as I have done on these): keep some different variations with you on the river.
