Copper Green Streamer Fly Pattern Recipe


Hook: Mustad #2 8xl R79-94720
Thread: Black 8/0
Body: Copper flat tinsel
Belly: Yellow bucktail
Throat: Red hackle fibers
Wing: Green hackle flanked by brown hackle
Shoulder: Ringneck pheasant back
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes:


Cameron has created a series of original designs based on and inspired by the works of Carrie Stevens which include this streamer and his Antique streamer. The Copper / Green has been crafted to mimic the colors of bait fish that can be found in and around the Great Lakes where Cameron often chooses to wet a line. The pheasant cheek creates a nice fat target for predators, and the fly has been successful swinging in some of Ontario's fast flowing waters.

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.
