Tied by: Jim Malo
Originated by: Jim Malo

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook

Tail: Lady Amherst pheasant crest
Butt: Made in three parts using the rear quarter of the body. Rear quarter is peacock herl followed by orange silk and the last quarter is peacock herl
Body: Dark blue floss
Rib: Silver oval tinsel
Belly: Ligt yellow bucktail
Wing: 2 light dun hackles
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Orange

Notes: Jim's cache of original includes many with the complex streamer bodies in the tradition of Herb Welch's classic streamers. Jim has used the Northern Delight to fish many of Maine's storied lakes such as Rangeley Lake, Sabago Lake and Penobscot Lake. The pattern has been responsible for many trout and landlocked salmon over the years. Jim has tested the pattern throughout Canada, Maine and Massachusetts with similar positive results in each local. Jim ties the pattern sparse using just 2 hackles in the wing, and just a smattering of bucktail in the belly.

… 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.
