#130 Dickie - Peggy Brenner


Tied by: Peggy Brenner
Originated by: Ora Smith
Source: Art of Angling Journal; Volume 2 Issue 1 pg. 46,62

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 8xl #4
Thread: Black
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Rib: Oval silver tinsel wound counter
Underwing: Orange bucktail
Wing: 4 orange hackles
Shoulder: Golden pheasant tippet
Eye: Jungle cock
Head: Black

Notes: The pattern is on of several hundred found in the Art of Angling Journal Volume 2, Issue 1. Peggy ties a decidedly elegant Rangeley flavored streamer with the wings set low covering the body and the extra long hook. The original featured a quite large (1/2 - 2/3 body length) golden pheasant tippet with a long wing set on a shorter hook. Dickie may be a nod to Dick Fozie and his Dick's Special pattern as the two streamers share many similar traits.

The April streamers have now been posted on the auction page and will be open until next Sunday, May 13th. To check out the auctions, visit streamers2012 on ebay.

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.
