#35 Road Rash - Bill Chandler


Tied by: Bill Chandler
Originated by: Bill Chandler

Hook: Mustad 3907A
Thread: Black
Body: Copper tinsel
Belly: Sparse white bucktail
Under-shoulder: Red and black schlappen fibers
Throat: Red and black schlappen fibers
Wing: 2 red hackles flanked by badger dyed Indian Crow (Feathers MC)
Eyes: Jungle cock

Notes: This is another beautiful example of a streamer tyed with the Funky Feathers from Feathers MC. The fly is dressed sparse, and so even at larger sizes, it would be easy enough to cast. The red and black complement each other nicely with the badger feather. It's a real firecracker of a pattern, slim, bright and would be wonderful not only for salmon and brook trout, but steelhead and browns might have trouble staying away from this urtication.

That is a beautiful streamer. I love the colors in it. The tye itself is very well done too. Bravo!

… 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.
