#352 CDL Smelt - Joel Stansbury #352 CDL Smelt - Joel Stansbury


Tied by: Joel Stansbury
Originated by: Joel Stansbury

Hook: Partridge CS15 #4
Thread: White 8/0
Tag: Silver flat tinsel
Body: Orange UNI-Stretch
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: White hen hackle fibers
Wing: 2 yellow hackles flanked by olive hackle flanked by Coq de Leon hackle
Shoulder: Jungle cock body feather
Eyes: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: An impressive smelt imitation using some natural looking yellow and olive tones nestled under a badger Coq de Leon hackle. Joel's streamer is a wonderful mimic for the rainbow smelts that make up a large portion of the diets of big lake sport fish. the dark centers of the Coq de Leon hackle make a perfect lateral line for the smelt.

… 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.
