#212 Bucktail Silver Streamer - Bob Petti #212 Bucktail Silver Streamer - Bob Petti


Tied by: Bob Petti
Originated by: Ray Bergman
Source: Streamer Fly Tying and Fishing: Bates Pg. 238

Hook: Mustad 3665A #6-#12
Thread: Black
Body: Embossed silver tinsel
Throat: Red hackle fibers
Underwing: A small bunch of white bucktail
Wing: 2 silver badger hackles
Eye: Jungle cock
Head: Black

Notes: This is one of the three streamers originated by Ray Bergman. The streamer should be dressed spare so that is compresses to a thin minnow shape in the water. The original pattern calls for a golden pheasant crest dyed red in place of the red hackle throat. A slight variation of the pattern calls for the tyer to place the bucktail on the streamer as a belly instead of the underwing and then omit the red throat.

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.
