#75-2013 PBR Steelhead Bucktail - Jon Harrang #75-2013 PBR Steelhead Bucktail - Jon Harrang


Tied by: Jon Harrang
Originated by: Jon Harrang

Hook: Partridge CS17 Ken Baker #2
Thread: Black 8/0
Tag: Silver oval tinsel fine
Tail: Golden pheasant crest dyed red
Body: Pearl Mylar braid
Rib: Silver oval tinsel
Beard: 2 turns of white hackle followed by 2 turns of scaup flank (teal or pintail ok for sub)
Wing: Blue bucktail under purple bucktail with fluorescent red dyed badger over top
Collar: Purple hackle
Head: Black

Notes: Jon created the PBR Steelhead Bucktail in pursuit of the Northeast's legendary steelhead. The name of the streamer comes from the purple, blue and red used in the wing, but also as a nod to Pabst Blue Ribbon, a cheap American canned beer that has been the beverage of choice on numerous steelheading trips Jon and friends have taken over the years.

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.
