#142 Champ's Special Streamer - Bob Petti


Tied by: Bob Petti
Originated by: Frank Congdon
Source: Streamer Fly Tying and Fishing: Bates Pg. 253

Hook: Sealey & Sons unknown #5
Thread: Black
Tail: Red floss
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Ribbing: Silver oval tinsel
Belly: A small bunch of white bucktail over 4-5 peacock herls
Underwing: A small bunch of yellow bucktail
Wing: 4 grizzly hackles
Head: Black

Notes: The pattern was designed by Mr. frank Congdon from Middletown, Connecticut and was named for his wife. The yellow bucktail in the underwing was sometimes substituted with 2 golden pheasant crests, so the bucktail is also kept sparse. The pattern was given to the Weber Tackle Co.

I like this fly a lot Bob. The fact it has grizzly is a huge plus for me. You did a great job on this one.

I like that pattern, I'd also like to see it with the Golden Pheasant crest in place of the yellow bucktail. Nice tie Bob!

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.
