The silver pheasant can be tough to tie as well. You just have to find ones with the finer stem and it'll go fine. My experience is that the larger feathers have a pretty fine stem at the tip and I can usually get what I need from that.

Also, you only need a turn or two of silver pheasant on this fly. A little bit goes a long way.
