Ringneck Pheasant

The American Ringneck is a species unto itself, not resembling any original wild Chinese strain, this line has been crossed with so many subspecies to produce the perfect bird to shoot at. It is the perfect melting pot of pheasants, what scientists say represents a "stereotyped hybid swarm". Farms that breed them for release have genetically selected for a large, colorful, meaty bird that would rather fly than run, so hunters can get a good shot on opening day!

Tying with Ringneck Pheasant Feathers

One of the most under-used birds for artistic tiers is the ubiquitous Ringneck
pheasant. Many Mary Orvis Marbury patterns such as the Cleveland and the Maid Of The Mill bass flies and other.

Trout tiers know the pheasant tail nymph, wet fly wings, legs on hoppers and steelhead tiers have used rump feathers for throats and for long heron like hackles for a long time. Don’t forget the hen for March Brown wings and wet fly wings.

Just as with Peafowl, many breeders have toyed with the elasticty of the Ringneck gene pool. They have isloated some vary interesting color mutations ranging from white to black menanistic.
