Silver Pheasant

These birds appear to be adapted to a more grasslike enviroment where the males white-black plumage pattern blends beautifully with the sun-bleached expanses of grasses. There is considerable geographic variation especially in the males; birds found in the north have longer tails than the south, and as you move from east to west the V shaped pattern becomes thicker, making the birds appear darker.

Tips for Tying with Silver Pheasant Feathers

The tail feathers have served the salmon tier in many ways such as in married and mixed wing flies.

Streamer tiers/fishermen are served well with cheeks from body plumage.When dyed or not the body feathers make great throats and opens up other possibilities for the creative tier.

The dark blue crests can be used for underwings for streamer patterns and the saltwater tier make note that these crests make absolutely great caps for blue back baitfish patterns

The shoulder feathers also work, but the barring is not as tight.
