WELCH RAREBIT
HEAD Black
TAIL Extremely narrow sections of duck or goose wing feathers in red, yellow and blue plus two strands of a peacock sword feather. All four colors are of equal and normal length, with the blue and yellow married together on one side (with yellow at the top) and the red and peacock on the other side.
BODY Medium flat silver tinsel
RIBBING Narrow oval silver tinsel
THROAT A small bunch of fibers from a guinea hen body feather
WING One wine red (dark red) saddle hackle on each side of which are two white saddle hackles
TOPPING Nine strands of bright green peacock herl, as long as the wing
COMMENTS Similar to the Jane Craig, the dark red saddles give a nice color blend with the white. Perhaps the most complex streamer tail you'll tie. Notice the wing extends well past the hook bend - a common characteristic of Welch's streamers.
