Golden Pheasant Crests

The Golden Pheasant (Chrysolophus pictus) is native to forests in mountainous areas of western China but feral populations have been established in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. The adult male is 90-105 cm in length, its tail accounting for two-thirds of the total length. It is unmistakable with its golden crest and rump and bright red body. The deep orange "cape" can be spread in display, appearing as an alternating black and orange fan that covers all of the face except its bright yellow eye, with a pinpoint black pupil.


Golden Pheasant Skins
These skins contain many body feathers that are used for hackle on smaller and medium size steelhead and Atlantic Salmon flies.  The natural skin comes with the complete head. The dyed skins have a complete compliment of saddle and rump feathers that contain long wispy barbuals that are perfect for spider and spey type patterns. These fibers are translucent in nature.  Some of the famous patterns that use these feathers are the Lady Caroline and Purple Summer spey.

Golden Pheasant Head & Neck Parts
Cock Golden Pheasants fan their tippets in courtship. These distinctive orange and black barred feathers were the rage for tailing material on many American flies early in the 2oth Century.  Golden Pheasant crest feathers were used in nearly every full dressed Atlantic Salmon fly and were commonly referred to as "topping".  With many of

these elegant birds now being raised in captivity, they have become more commonplace, but the feathers are still in high demand.
