Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook 8xl
Thread: White
Tail: Golden pheasant yellow body fibers
Body: Burgundy floss
Rib: Gold embossed tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Burgundy hackle fibers
Wing: Four burgundy hackles
Shoulder: Golden pheasant yellow body feather then tragopan
Head: Black

Notes: Claret and burgundy streamers can be tough to come by and some tyers and anglers place them among the top colors to fish with. The Washington TCC blends the colors of the Washington Redskins into a beautiful harmonious streamer. The yellow golden pheasant feathers perfectly contrast the deep woody clarets, and the use of the tragopan feather for the eye gives this streamer a unique look. The Redskins franchise started out in Boston in the 1930's as the Boston Braves before being moved to D.C. several year later.

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.
