Tied by: Scott Murdock
Originated by: Scott Murdock

Hook: Daiichi Alec Jackson #3/0
Thread: Black 8/0
Tag: Gold oval tinsel
Body: Green floss
Rib: Orange floss edged by gold and silver oval tinsel
Throat: Peacock herl, white bucktail and golden pheasant crest
Wing: Green bucktail under dark blue bucktail
Collar: Guinea fowl

Notes: Scott developed the fly by pulling colors from a version of the Scott tartan called the Scott Green Ancient. The tartan is primarily green with a heavy influence of blue with a bit of yellow, orange , black a white crossed in. The Scott clan was known to be a powerful Border Clan who quarreled regularly with their neighbors. Hopes are that the tradition continues once the fly is face to face with some feisty salmonids.

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.
