#326 Mellow Yellow - Jim Bennett #326 Mellow Yellow - Jim Bennett


Tied by: Jim Bennett
Originated by: Jim Bennett

Hook: Partridge CS15 #4
Thread: Fluorescent red 8/0
Tag: Silver flat tinsel
Body: Yellow floss
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Belly: White bucktail then sunburst dyed golden pheasant crest
Wing: 4 yellow hackles
Shoulder: Orkney peach hen hackles
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Fluorescent red

Notes: Jim tied the Mellow Yellow to attract the Scottish brown and rainbow trout. The combination of colors work quite well for luring in curious fish. The Orkney peach color may be unfamiliar to North American anglers, but the UK brethren of the fly know this fleshy tone to be classified information. The color is made by combining a secret blend of Glo Bright floss into a custom dubbing blend.

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.
