#164 Bogong Beauty - Robert Frandsen


Tied by: Robert Frandsen
Originated by: Robert Frandsen

Hook: Mustad 94720
Thread: White
Tag: Flat silver tinsel
Body: Chartreuse silk / floss
Rib: Flat silver tinsel
Belly: Peacock herl then white bucktail
Throat: Chartreuse schlappen
Underwing: Golden pheasant crest
Wing: 2 chartreuse hackles flanked by grizzly hackle
Shoulder: Wood duck flank

Notes: The Bogong Beauty was inspired by a trout fly developed by one of Bob's fishing buddies some time ago that featured a grizzly wing. Bob added the chartreuse wing and just went with it, decking the streamer out in chartreuse. The Bogong High Plains are an iconic section of the Alpine National Park in the Australian state of Victoria with Mount Bogong the main focal point.

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.
