About the Cove's Pheasant Tail Nymph Trout Flies Fly

Arthur Cove, an inspiriational leading stillwater angler from Wellingborough, Northants, created his 'Cove's Pheasant Tail Nymph' that through the tests of time has become a classic.

It is best used on a long leader with a very slow figure of eight retrieve, just as Arthur fishes it with great results.

Expert Tip:

"Remember that the ticket you buy is to enable you to fish, it doesn't give you a guarantee to catch fish." Sound advice indeed from Arthur Cove.
