#281 Shelburne Bay Sunset - Bill Chandler #281 Shelburne Bay Sunset - Bill Chandler


Tied by: Bill Chandler
Originated by: Bill Chandler

Hook: Edgar Sealey & Sons 1762B #1/0
Thread: White 8/0
Body: Gold flat tinsel
Under-shoulder: Yellow hackle fibers
Belly: Orange bucktail then yellow bucktail then white bucktail
Throat: Yellow hackle fibers
Wing: 2 yellow hackles flanked by orange unique variant hackle
Shoulder: Red golden pheasant
Eyes: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: Bills streamers are always a treat to set your eyes upon. This warm colored streamer picks the sunset out of the sky and places it on the hook. The unique variant hackle with its black tips is a perfect complement the rich orange, red, and yellow tones found in the wing and shoulder of the fly. Shelburne Bay is located in northern Vermont, sprouting out of the infamous Lake Champlain. The lake is home to over 90 species of fish including trout, pike, bass, perch and sunfish. It may also be home to one special species of lake monster. The hope is that if Champ is in there, it will find Bill's streamer, and the speculation can be put to rest.

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.
