#115 Artula (Variant) - Robbie Hiltz


Tied by: Robbie Hiltz
Originated by: Carrie Stevens
Source: Carrie G. Stevens: Maker of Rangeley Favorite Trout and Salmon Flies; Hilyard Pg 126-128

Hook: Partridge CS15 #4
Tag: Silver embossed tinsel
Body: Orange floss
Rib: Silver embossed tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Brown hackle fibers
Wing: 2 green hackles flanked by black hackles
Cheek: Jungle cock
Head: Black (optional orange band)

Notes: This is another of Carrie Stevens' famous patterns with an unknown origin. Once time travel is developed, we can send back someone to find out what Carrie had named this streamer after. The black outer wing blends nicely with the inner green, and the wet fly produces a dark wing contrasted by a light body and belly. I should note that this is a slight variant, straying from the original dressing only by the omission of the orange hackle fiber tail and the use of the embossed tinsel.

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.
