#63-2013 Orange Sherbert - Kevin Kirkelie #63-2013 Orange Sherbert - Kevin Kirkelie


Tied by: Kevin Kirkelie
Originated by: Kevin Kirkelie

Hook: Mustad 79580 #1
Thread: Black 6/0
Tail: Golden pheasant tippets
Body: Light orange floss
Rib: Gold flat tinsel
Wing: Orange bucktail then white bucktail
Collar: Golden pheasant tippet tied in clumps to form the collar
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: At first glance, Kevin's Orange Sherbert looks like a throw-back to Carrie Stevens' Golden Witch or perhaps the Lady Ghost. Kevin uses a novel approach to create the collar on the fly. He uses small sections of golden pheasant tippet to surround the head. The result is a boldly colored, full looking shoulder / throat. Kevin also stipulates that the orange bucktail in the wing should be tied slightly longer than the top white portion of the wing.

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.
