They are the same. The advantage to buying the complete tail is that you have other feathers to work with. I use a variety of the feather off of the whole bird on a lot of different flies.

Eaglesfn68-

Here’s a Ringneck pheasant tail clump for 6 bucks, just so you can see what they look like. You'd want to use the long tail feathers for the Pheasant Tail Nymph:
Spirit River: Ringneck Pheasant Tail Clump, Natural, 18 in.

Some places sell Pheasant Tail feathers individually. They usually run about 1.25 a piece for undyed feathers and are sold 2 for 2.50 or 5 feathers for 6 bucks, dyed feathers are a bit more. Buying a clump works out about the same per feather, maybe a little less. BTW, you'll get a lot from one feather and they have a lot of uses for tails on other nymphs and emergers etc.

There are also different types of pheasants, and their tails are more expensive. But you want Ringneck for the PTN.

you want these tail feathers for a pheasent tail http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...set=ISO-8859-1


make sure you don't get the pheasent full skin cause it doesn't come with the tail. like this its only 10 bux but no tail feathers. what can you use this for? Cabela's -- Ringneck Pheasant Skin

Pheasant skins are one of the most user friendly things that a person can have in his arsenal, Virtually every feather on the skin can be used for something, whether it be for soft hackles, tails, collars, throats, wings, etc, etc.

not trying ot hijack the thread but I wish I knew patterns that used the skin feathers. I usually stick to the basic flies cause where I fish there are no trout at all only steelhead trout when its cold. other than that its bass and gills and I use buggers,clousers,leeches with basic nymphs and dries and small egg pattens

George,
If I were you I would start a new thread in fly pattern section and i'm sure that you will receive many patterns that use the skin feathers.

Just a suggestion

I was lucky enough to know a lot of hunters and a taxidermist who had full skins with tail. The one i currently have will last me along time.

You should have posted somthing earlier...i get a ton of pheasants each fall. I generally only keep a few of the wing feathers and one or two tail feathers for tieng. This year though pheasant hunting has been really slow only got 9 so far. Might not get back out with the way the weather is going. Snow Snow and more snow...when its all over expect more snow and sub 0 temps
