#65 Lady Coq de Leon - Joel Stansbury


Tied by: Joel Stansbury
Originated by: Joel Stansbury

Hook: Partridge CS15
Thread: Black
Body: Gold flat tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Coq De Leon fibers and golden pheasant tippet
Wing: Olive hackle flanked by Coq De Leon hackle
Eyes: Jungle cock
Head: Black

Notes: There is something magical with the way the spotted Coq De Leon feathers blend with other hackles. That combined with the wonderful speckling of the golden pheasant tippet in the throat, presents mottled muted tones seen on many bait fish. The modern piscivore will be please to see this streamer trolled in front of it's nose and should find it hard to pass up this tempting morsel.

Joel, your flies are always a treat for me. Beautiful fly here. I am a big fan of Coq de Leon, but have not acquired any yet. That is going to have to change. (especially after seeing this beauty~!)

Nicely done.

I need to make a small correction on the Throat: it is a Silver Pheasant body fthr. and a G.Ph. Tippet .Thanks for the kind comments everyone.

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.
