Olive Wood Duck Darter Streamer Fly Pattern Recipe


Hook: Mustad #2 6xl
Thread: Black 8/0
Tail: 2 matching slips of barred wood duck
Body: Gold flat tinsel
Rib: Silver oval tinsel
Throat: Red hackle fibers
Wing: Wood duck flank
Collar: Olive hackle
Head: Black

Notes:

Cameron's Olive Wood Duck Darter streamer follows a tradition of flatwing style streamers. Patterns such as Mike Martinek's Orange Darter, the Canadian Killer, Branchu and the Wood Special all share the distinctive wood duck flank wing tied in flat and is the source of Cameron's inspiration for the design. The colors were selected to provide a more imitative color scheme to mimic baitfish found in Ontario's Georgian Bay waters. His instincts were proven correct with the local smallmouth bass, and no doubt that the streamer would find success in other waters with trout and panfish.

… 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.
