#25-2013 Rainbow Delight - Kevin Kirkelie #25-2013 Rainbow Delight - Kevin Kirkelie


Tied by: Kevin Kirkelie
Originated by: Kevin Kirkelie

Hook: Mustad 79580 #1
Thread: White 6/0
Tail: Peacock sword fibers
Body: White floss
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Wing: Olive over pink over white bucktail
Throat: Lady Amherst pheasant head feather dyed blue
Head: Black

Notes: Kevin is a big believer in fishing trout fry patterns and has developed several productive patterns over the years. The Rainbow Delight is just one of those designs that has made a home in his fly box. The fly features an interesting blue cheek originating from just under the crest of the Lady Amherst pheasant's head. It results in a beautiful, inviting and colorful fry pattern trout will undoubtedly fall victim to.

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.
