#57 Brookie Fin - Dave Lomasney


Tied by: Dave Lomasney
Originated by: Helen Shaw

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek 8xl #2
Thread: Black 6/0
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Throat: White schlappen
Wing: 4 orange hackles
Shoulder: Equal slips of white and black goose shoulder married
Eye: Jungle cock (optional)
Head: Black

Notes: Dave's Brookie Fin is a conversion of a Helen Shaw pattern of the same name. With the bright orange hackle and silver body, this is an excellent streamer to cast to aggressive lake run brook trout and land locked salmon in the fall months. There are several similar patterns to the Brookie Fin (wet) which all feature married wings of the prevalent colors in the brook trout's fin. Bergman Fontinalis, Fontinails Fin, Armstrong Fontinalis, Brook Fin, Trout Fin, and Olive Trout Fin all also share the distinctive married white black and orange wing but each is distinct.

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.
