Teal Blue & Black Streamer Fly Pattern


Hook: Mustad R79 #2
Thread: Black 8/0
Tag: Silver flat tinsel
Body: Black floss
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Silver Dr. blue then black schlappen fibers
Under-wing: 4-6 peacock herls
Wing: 2 Silver Dr. blue hackles flanked by black hackle
Shoulder: Teal flank
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: I have always been a fan of dark flies with black and blue predominately. Perhaps it is the dissimilarity it presents from the usual earthy tomes of green and brown I like to fish. This strikingly coloured streamer was inspired by Tuomas' addiction to fishing black and blue flies. The teal shoulder is a nice fit and pulls from the classic wet flies Teal & Black and Teal, Blue & Silver threads. This streamer will be most at home in Tuomas' Scandinavian home waters, but should fair equally as well on the North American side of the pond.

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.
