#111 Don's Palomino - Darren MacEachern


Tied by: Darren MacEachern
Originated by: Darren MacEachern

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 8xl #1
Thread: 6/0 White
Tag: Silver embossed tinsel
Body: Chinese red floss
Rib: Silver embossed tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Underwing: Peacock herl
Wing: 2 badger hackles flanked by 2 Coque de Leon hackles
Shoulder: Copper Pheasant
Eye: Jungle cock
Head: Black

Notes: The inspiration for the streamer came with a delivery of materials from my good friend Don Ordes. In the package was an assortment of CDL hackles that I fell in love with right away. I used the badger hackle inside of the CDL to give it a bit stronger lateral line, and the CDL gives the wing spectacular mottling.

Thanks Kelly! I just got in a new supply of CDL, and so it's wonderful timing to show this one off.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

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.
