#241 Jungle Pond Special - Alan Grombacher


Tied by: Alan Grombacher
Originated by: Alan Grombacher

Hook: #2 Castle Arms Heritage Allcock hook
Thread: Black Pearsalls Gossamar silk thread
Tag: Silver flat tinsel
Body: Black floss
Ribbing: Flat silver tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Coq de Leon dyed olive
Wing: 2 Coq de Leon dyed olive hackles flanked by Coq de Leon
Shoulder: Jungle cock body
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black Pearsalls Gossamar silk thread

Notes: The Jungle Pond Special was tyed for a rather large pond way up North that has a good population of large rainbows. The pond is set a ways back from the road and can be a challenge to get into if the weather has been wet and humid. The feathers used in the wing are a favourite, Coq De Leon, used specifically for their speckled coloration. The jungle cock body feather and jungle cock nail make a very attractive eye area. This pattern draws some aggressive strikes in the "Jungle Pond". Not only does it attract the large lunker trout, but it has also been responsible for coaxing its fair share of lakers and walleye to the water surface to get a glimpse of Alberta Al.

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.
