Originated by: Unknown
Source: Streamer Fly Tying and Fishing - Joseph Bates Pg. 250-251

Hook: Daiichi Alec Jackson 2051
Thread: Red 8/0
Tag: Gold flat tinsel
Tail: Red goose quill slips
Butt: White chenille
Body: green wool dubbing
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Throat: Red hackle fibers

Notes: Well, it may not exactly be a hair wing technically, but it does exude the spirit of one. The streamer originated in Chile and was widely used as fodder for South American quarry. The pattern made it's way north via a fly dresser in New York named Elizabeth Greig. Mrs. Greig tied the pattern for South American customers and tested the usefulness of the fly in her home state waters. It was proven to be a successful pattern for trout in New York State.

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.
