#182 Green Dace - Don Ordes #182 Green Dace - Don Ordes


Tied by: Don Ordes
Originated by: Don Ordes

Hook: Partridge CS15
Thread: Black 6/0
Body: Dark olive floss
Rib: Gold embossed tinsel
Belly: Mixed black, red and olive bucktail
Throat: Orange polar bear underfur
Wing: 4 yellow hackles flanked by olive hackle flanked by Coq De Leon hackle
Shoulder: Peacock body feather
Eye: Jungle cock
Head: Black

Notes: A fantastic dark fly to be used as a redside dace or perch imitation. The Coq de Leon hackles help to blend the olive and yellow, and give the wing a natural looking speckled appearance. The Peacock body feathers crisply define the head on the streamer, giving aquatic apex predators such as northern pike, largemouth bass and perhaps even more exotic fare, an easy target to aim for.

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.
