#30 Parmachene Beau (Variant) - Robert Frandsen


Tied by: Robert Frandsen
Originated by: Henry P. Wells

Hook: Partridge CS15 #4
Thread: Black
Tag: Flat silver tinsel
Tail: Hackle fibers stacked white / red / white
Butt: Peacock herl
Rib: Oval silver tinsel
Body: Flat silver Mylar
Thorax: Peacock herl
Collar: Mixed red and white hackle
Wing: 4 White hackles flanked by a shorter red hackle
Shoulder: Equal married sections of matched left and right goose quill white / red / white half the wing length
Eyes: Jungle cock

Notes: The Parmachene Beau is an adaptation of the Parmachene Belle designed by Henry P. Well of Providence, Rhode Island. The defining difference between the two is in the body with the Beau featuring silver tinsel and the Belle dressed in yellow wool. There is a wet fly version of the Parmachene Beau and it should be noted that the body is dressed in pale yellow floss rather than the silver tinsel seen in the streamer. Because of the complexity of the pattern, it is often simplified to a hair wing, or the married elements are faked by placing a red strip over the center of a large white quill section. You may also see this listed under slightly different spellings such as "Parmachenie", "Parmechenee" or "Parmacheene". The name Parmachene was taken from the Parmacheene Lake and Parmacheene Club located in the Rangeley region of Maine.

… 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.
