#324 Pumpkin Head - Glenn Peckel


Tied by: Glenn Peckel
Originated by: Ora Smith
Source: Trolling Flies for Trout and Salmon; Dick Stewart & Bob Leeman 1982 pg.81

Hook: Mustad 3665A
Body: Gold embossed tinsel
Wing: 10-15 long golden pheasant crest feathers tied flat on top curving downward
Shoulder: Tied flat on top of the wing and about half the wing length is a section of bronze mallard flank over which is tied a section of golden pheasant tippet, 40% of the shoulder length.
Head: Fluorescent orange floss
Eye: Painted black with white pupil

Notes: This is another of Ora Smith's signature golden pheasant crest winged flies. Because of the amount of feathers tied on at the head, this can be quite a tricky streamer to tie without it getting a fat head. Glenn has put together an amazing set of 12 Ora Smith streamers as his contribution to the Streamers 365 project. We will be auctioning them all together as a set near the end of the project.

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.
