#120 Pink Phantom - Bill Chandler


Tied by: Bill Chandler
Originated by: Bill Chandler

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Streamer Hook #1 8xl
Thread: Black
Body: Copper tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Underwing: Copper Krystal Flash
Under-shoulder: Red and black schlappen fibers
Throat: Red and black schlappen fibers
Wing: Olive and pink hackle
Shoulder: Lewis (Anderson) pheasant
Eyes: Jungle cock
Head: Black

Notes: It's tough to find the Lewis / Anderson pheasant feathers, and when you do finally get a hold of a couple, you'll want to use them sparingly. They are similar to that of the silver pheasant, but where the silver pheasant plumage is white with black lines, the Lewis pheasant has black plumage with white lines. The pink and olive in the wing is quite smelty, a bit of a surprising combination, but it really works.

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.
