Originated by: David Mac

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Carrie Stevens hook #1 10xl
Thread: Black 8/0
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Rib: Silver oval tinsel, small
Belly: Yellow Icelandic sheep hair

Wing: 4 yellow saddle hackles
Shoulder: Black laced hen dyed red tied 3/4 length of wing

Notes: The Nephew #1 has a variety of feather patterns applied to the design using both the spotted guinea fowl and the striking black laced hackles engineered by Whiting Farms. The pattern also makes use of one of David's favorite materials for streamer bellies, Icelandic Sheep. It has a soft crinkle in the hair and amazing flow in the current. David tied this streamer in 2008, commissioned by his client Mr. Robert Kate of new York City. David also tied a number of other streamers for Mr. Kate including the Niece #1 and the Purple Kate.

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.
