#240 Bloody Mary Streamer - Davie McPhail #240 Bloody Mary Streamer - Davie McPhail


Tied by: Davie McPhail
Originated by: Davie McPhail

Hook: Partridge CS15 #2
Thread: 6/0 red
Tag: Oval silver tinsel
Rear Collar: Golden pheasant rump dyed red
Butt: Black ostrich herl
Body: Flat silver tinsel over wrapped with opal tinsel
Rib: Fine red wire
Belly: White bucktail and a golden pheasant crest dyed red sweeping upwards
Throat: Guinea fowl
Wing: 2 red hackles flanked by heron spey hackle or brown Whiting spey hackles
Cheek: Teal flank dyed red
Topping: Golden pheasant crest then Guinea fowl same length as throat
Eye: Jungle cock
Head: Red

Notes:The Bloody Mary Streamer incorporates some of Davie's personal style, UK and Spey influence. The body has a unique flash being silver over wrapped with an opal translucent tinsel. The result is a silver flash highlighted with flecks of green and blue. Davie used a heron feather on the wing of his tie, but they can be difficult to acquire, and so a brown Whiting hackle from the Spey line will make a great sub.

Hi Davie,

your streamer looks nice, I especially like the red dyed teal flank shoulders. Did you dye your feathers? If not, where can I get it? Surely not in Czech fly shop...:-(((

… 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.
