#132 Spotted Cardinal

Spotted Cardinal - David Mac

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Carrie Stevens hook #1 10xl
Thread: Black
Body: Red floss
Rib: Silver Mylar tinsel,size 10
Throat: White hackle
Wing: Two white saddle hackles flanked by two red saddle hackles
Shoulder: Red Guinea fowl over Wood Duck breast feather

Notes: A majestic red pattern commissioned in 1980 for use in West Grand Lake, Maine by Mr. Steven MacDonald from the UK. I like the blended shoulder of wood duck and guinea fowl and the thick vertical profile of the streamer. This should be a great streamer to troll with early in the season in shallow waters and near the surface.

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.

… 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.
