#228 Pink Beauty - Marcelo Morales #228 Pink Beauty - Marcelo Morales

Tied by: Marcelo Morales
Originated by: Carrie Stevens
Source: Forgotten Flies, Schmookler & Sils (1999)

Hook: Partridge CS15 #4
Thread: Black 6/0
Body: Flat silver tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Pink hackle fibers
Underwing: 4-6 peacock herls
Wing: 4 carnation pink hackles
Shoulder: Bronze mallard flank
Eye: Jungle cock (optional)
Head: Black with orange band

Notes: This dressing was taken from Austin Hogan's correspondence with Carrie Stevens and varies a little from that published in Graydon and Leslie Hilyard's book. The Hilyard dressing calls for a silver tag, black body, silver ribbing and a yellow throat. Based on what is known about her patterns, it is possible that more than one version was tied, having evolved over time. Marcelo brings his unique style to the project with this streamer. He has tied the streamer with a slightly tapered body and the head shape he has become so well known for in streamer circles.

An absolutely outstanding looking fly Mr. Morales. A real EYE CANDY!!! It is very rare to see a better tied STRMR than this one is!!! I saw your works on and all of your ties had been fabulous and preciously tied. Are you a member of streamerlist?¨
If there is a tier who would like to learn tying streamers, then you will certainly be his(her) teacher. Petr Haisman

… 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.
