#287 Niece #1 - David Mac #287 Niece #1 - David Mac


Tied by: David Mac
Originated by: David Mac

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook #1 10xl
Thread: Black 8/0
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Belly: Chartreuse Icelandic sheep hair
Throat: Black hackle fibers
Wing: 4 chartreuse saddle hackles
Shoulder: Black laced hen dyed chartreuse tied half length of wing
Cheek: Chartreuse Guinea hen
Head: Black
Eyes: Painted white eye with black pupil

Notes: "If it ain't chartreuse, it ain't no use", has been muttered among packs fly fishers at one time or another. David's Niece #1 streamer fits the bill on that account. The color is a sublime mimic for light colors of the rainbow smelts found throughout North American lakes. The streamer was commissioned in 2008 for David's client Mr. Robert Kate of New York.

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.
