Tied by: Mike Boyer
Originated by: Mike Boyer

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 6xl
Thread: White 8/0
Tag: Copper oval tinsel
Tail: Barred wood duck
Body: Gold flat tinsel
Ribs: Copper oval tinsel and orange silk floss
Belly: Orange bucktail and golden pheasant crest
Throat: White schlappen
Wing: 2 orange hackles flanked by dark orange hackle (terra cotta)
Shoulder: Wood duck flank
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: Mike has taken a que from mother nature in selecting the colure for his Fall Streamer. Yellow, orange and gold tones play a leading role with the muted barring of the wood duck downplaying the brightness of the fly. Mike ties his streamers with white thread, including the head. He uses a marker to color the head and uses several coats of clear nail polish to give the fly a neat finish.

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.
