Pheasant Tail Hay Stack, Dun Hackle

The Pheasant Tail Haystack looks like an active insect sitting on the water. Keep in mind that fish are opportunistic and eat for a living. There does not need to be a full-blown hatch for trout to feed on the surface. You cast an edible looking fly in the feeding lane of fish lying in wait, and, bang, fish on! The Haystack is that pattern!
