Dambuster Streamer Fly Recipe


Hook: Mustad L-87-3665A #2
Thread: Black 8/0
Body: Black floss
Rib: Red oval tinsel and copper embossed tinsel
Throat: Red hen hackle fibers
Wing: Red bucktail (brown hairs with light tips)
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: Prior to spawning, Jim had observed the monster browns from the local waters cruising the edge of the dam in search of minnows. He conceived the pattern in an effort to take advantage of the situation. The wing is tied using the brown part of a red dyed bucktail, giving the wing a beautiful transition of almost black to red.

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.
