#279 The Crimson Fly - Don Ordes #279 The Crimson Fly - Don Ordes


Tied by: Don Ordes
Originated by: Don Ordes

Hook: Mustad 3907A #2
Thread: White
Tag: Gold flat tinsel
Body: Red floss
Rib: Gold flat tinsel
Belly: Yellow fluoro fiber then red polar bear
Wing: 4 badger dyed red hackles flanked by 2 red hackles flanked by yellow fluoro fiber flanked by shorter badger hackle dyed red
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Red with a black band

Notes: Don's streamers always display a glimpse into his artistic side and showcase his eye for color. The Crimson Fly is was tied on a red and black theme. The black of the badger hackle is mirrored in the band on the head of the fly as Don takes a queue from Carrie Stevens. The Crimson Fly should serve anglers well on cloudy and dark days, trolling the deep cool waters of Northern Maine.

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.
