#163 Horace Hazard - Darren MacEachern


Tied by: Darren MacEachern
Originated by: Darren MacEachern

Hook: #1 8xl Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Carrie Stevens Rangeley Streamer Hook
Thread: Black flat waxed nylon
Tag: Gold flat tinsel
Tail: Red schlappen
Body: Black floss
Ribbing: Flat gold tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Red schlappen
Wing: 2 black hackles flanked by grizzly dyed olive
Shoulder: Red golden pheasant
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: This fly was tied to imitate a Pearl Dace. The black is placed behind the olive so that the true color of the dace comes through when wet. I came up with pattern after seeing large trout chase these dark minnows in the shallows. The water would erupt when the trout came in, and I was able to catch a few to study closer. The name pays homage to an ancestor who died at the turn of the 19th century.

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.
