#57-2013 Super Sleuth - Bob Petti #57-2013 Super Sleuth - Bob Petti


Tied by: Bob Petti
Originated by: Mike Martinek Jr.

Hook: Mustad 3665A #4
Thread: Black 8/0
Tail: Golden pheasant crest
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Rib: Silver oval tinsel
Throat: Red hackle fibers
Wing: White bucktail under rainbow crystal flash under chartreuse bucktail under green bucktail under black bucktail
Head: Black
Eye: Painted white with black dot

Notes: Mike Martinek is well-known for the vibrant and brilliantly composed featherwing streamer he has developed over the years, but often his equally effective hairwing designs get little attention. A purple variation of the Super Sleuth has also found a spot in Mike's repertoire of casting bucktails. This one is from Mike's second hard to find book and was something that caught Bob's eye. The original recipe in the book doesn't list the green bucktail, but it is pictured in the accompanying photo.

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.
