#358 Funky Sunset - Barry Phillips #358 Funky Sunset - Barry Phillips

Tied by: Barry Phillips
Originated by: Barry Phillips

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook
Thread: Black 8/0
Tail: Fire orange hackle fibers
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Ribbing: Silver oval tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Fire orange hackle fibers
Wing: 2 black hackles flanked by fire tiger dyed badger hackle
Shoulder: Blue peacock body feather
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: For every Sunrise there is a sunset and this funky streamer is lucky enough to have been pair with one of Barry's streamers featured early in the project. The Funky Sunrise (#10) is a close match to the Funky Sunset. The 2 streamers are quite similar, both using the fire tiger dyed Funky Feathers hackle from Feathers MC, but the Funky Sunset uses a darker Badger to suggest the impending darkness. While Barry had tied the duo initially because they were something nice to look at, he confesses that the flies have been saviours on fishing trips more than once.

Beautiful fly Barry.
It is a wonderful reminder of all the " Funky Sunrises " we have seen together in trout country over the years. Love the incorporation of the Peacock body fly for the shoulder. I hope this fly gets you another 14 pound Rainbow in the future. Congratulations on all your flies contributed to the Streamers 365 project.
Merry Christmas, and happy tying in the New Year.

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.
