#83-2013 Gierach's Little Brown Trout Variant - Bob Petti #83-2013 Gierach's Little Brown Trout Variant - Bob Petti


Tied by: Bob Petti
Originated by: John Gierach
Source: Fly Tyer Magazine Spring 2004 Volume 10 No. 1 pg. 34-39

Hook: Unknown 4xl #6-#12
Thread: White 6/0
Body: Pearl flat tinsel over white floss
Throat: White bucktail (short belly)
Wing: Orange bucktail, pearl Krystal Flash and fox squirrel tail
Topping: Peacock herl
Eye: Yellow painted eye with black center
Head: Black

Notes: Bob first found this John Gierach in the "Classic Fly Tyer" section of the Spring 2004 issue of Fly Tyer magazine, a reprint of a 1986 article penned by John Gierach for American Fly Tyer. The streamer caught Bob's eye, love at first sight so to speak, and quickly found a permanent slot in the well stocked and respected Petti streamer box. Bob's version of the streamer differs from John's in that it has no added weight along the shank and the body is pearl tinsel over white floss instead of a pearl braid.

I like the look of this fly. Would a pearl mylar tube work instead of the pearl tinsel to cover the floss?

It might change the fly a little bit, but you could bulk it up a little with some floss under the mylar.

… 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.
