#303 Brookie - Michael Decoteau #303 Brookie - Michael Decoteau


Tied by: Michael Decoteau

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Streamer hook 8xl #2
Thread: White 8/0
Tag: Silver flat tinsel
Tail: Lady Amherst pheasant tippet dyed red
Body: Red floss
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Belly: Black bucktail then white goat hair
Wing: 2 grizzly hackles flanked by olive hackle
Shoulder: Red hen flanked by a green iLady Amherst pheasant feather
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: Michael has designed a visually stunning pattern that will also do well swimming slowly behind a trolling motor or a lazy canoe paddle. Michael designed the Brookie to imitate juvenile brook trout. The legendary large brook trout and landlocked salmon of western Maine have been known to feed on these smaller vulnerable trout. This is a fact that Michael does not overlook and has crafted his streamer based on this knowledge and his observation on the water. The dark green feather used for the shoulder really pops, haloed with a rich red, suggesting that this is a young injured trout is in need of a merciful apex predator willing to put it out of its misery.

… 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.
