#202 Titanic - Eunan Hendron #202 Titanic - Eunan Hendron


Tied by: Eunan Hendron
Originated by: Eunan Hendron

Hook: Mustad Chestertown 3298 Size 9 (blind eye) with gut for eye.
Tail: White over black goose shoulder
Tag: Flat silver tinsel
Body: Black floss
Rib: Flat silver tinsel
Throat: White over black goose shoulder with white extending to tail, black 3/4 way along body
Wing: 4 white hackles
Eye: 2 jungle cock nail staggered each side
Roof: Black goose shoulder inverted so the natural curve of the goose flows with the wing.
Topping: GP crest
Head: Black

Notes: Eunan tied this one of a kind streamer to commemorate the sinking of the great ship Titanic 100 years ago. Each element of the fly has some significance. The colors of the throat, body and tail were chosen for the hull of the ship. The long sweeping white goose in the throat signifies the white lateral stripe just below the open decks. The JC, with 4 eyes for the 4 funnels. The silver tag and rib for the glamour of the maiden voyage. The white wing is for the clear cold night and smoke from the funnels and finally the topping for the lights of the ship.

… 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.
