#199 Zayne's Growl - Darren MacEachern #199 Zayne's Growl - Darren MacEachern


Tied by: Darren MacEachern
Originated by: Darren MacEachern

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek #1 8xl streamer hook
Thread: Black flat waxed nylon
Tail: Peacock sword then a pair of jungle cock nails tied back to back in a vertical plane
Body: Black floss
Rib: Flat silver tinsel
Belly: Dark blue bucktail
Wing: Four black hackles
Shoulder: Peacock body feather
Eye: Jungle cock spear
Head: Peacock sword

Notes: Darren named the pattern after his son and an interesting children's book about a monster named Growl. He uses jungle cock spears which are found on some capes near the back of the cape. Spears, like the jungle cock nails, have a hard enamel with white to orange tones. They are particularly useful on streamers as they have a nice shape that mimics the flow of the wing.

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.
