#75 Embden Fancy - Darren MacEachern


Tied by: Darren MacEachern
Originated by: Carrie Stevens
Sources: Carrie G. Stevens: Maker of Rangeley Favorite Trout and Salmon Flies - Hilyard Pg. 132-133

Hook: Partridge CS15 #2
Thread: Black
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Gadwall flank
Underwing: 6 strands peacock herl
Wing: 2 blue hackles flanked by orange hackles flanked by grizzly dyed yellow hackle
Eyes: Jungle cock
Head: Black (with orange band)

Notes: It isn't a streamer I often see, in fact I had never seen or heard of until I found it in Hilyard's book. Named for the nearby deep water pond and town of the same name, the Embden has a bright coloration. I find this to be one of the more elegant streamers in Carrie's portfolio and quite enjoy the unusual combination of color in 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.
