#143 Bev's Best - Barry Phillips


Tied by: Barry Phillips
Originated by: Barry Phillips

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook
Thread: White 70 denier
Tag: Flat gold tinsel
Tail: Golden pheasant crest
Body: Chestnut brown floss
Ribbing: Flat gold tinsel
Belly: White polar bear
Throat: White hackle fibers
Wing: Light dun hackle flanked by light olive hackle
Shoulder: Ringneck church window feather
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Topping: Golden pheasant crest
Head: Black

Notes: This fly is named for a friend of Barry's who likes to use this streamer in pursuit of Brown trout in her favorite lakes. The fly has a taste of the full dressed flies with the use of the golden pheasant crest topping and tail. The church window feathers are an ideal choice for a shoulder feather as they create a convincing gill plate behind the jungle cock eye.

I am always in awe of the fine detail work that is necessary to create such beautiful flies.

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.
