Red Shang's Special tied by D. MacEachern

Things are starting to quiet down with the move, and I've managed to get the tying area set-up again, and have tied a couple streamers. This is a variation of Carrie Stevens' Shang's Special that was done by Mike Martinek. I've followed Mike's pattern as closely as possible with the exception of using a red hen hackle cheek rather than the red duck flank Mike uses. Tied on a Mustad 3907B #2.

… 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.
