#10 Funky Sunrise - Barry Phillips


Tied by: Barry Phillips
Originated by: Barry Phillips

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook
Thread: Black 70 denier
Tail: Green hackle fibers
Body: Flat gold tinsel
Ribbing: Oval silver tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Green hackle fibers
Wing: 4 Fire Tiger dyed hackles
Shoulder: Blue peacock
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: This fly takes advantage of the FeathersMC specialty dyed line of feathers called Funky Feathers. Barry used the perch inspired Fire Tiger colored feathers to tie this attractor pattern. It was initially tied just for fun as something nice to look at, but a trial run through some Northern Alberta lakes suggests that the Rainbow trout population have taken a liking to Barry's streamer as well.

Barry, is the tail and wing topping made of married turkey dyed feathers on your Jenning fly?

Petr, goose or swan is usually used for the married shoulder on the Lord Iris. Barry Didn't tie the Lord Iris, it was Ted Patlen.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
