Black Cormorant

The story goes this fly was first used by a young angler in a youth fly fishing competition.
The fly has many variations from the original which was simply a peacock herl body and black marabou wing.
This fly seems more popular in still water but I see it as also promising for rivers. The fly has qualities of a streamer and a classic wet fly and in small sizes like the 14 in my video.

The variation that caught my eye is from Makflies. Here is the link to his video.

Hook: nymph hook 14 & up
Thread: black
Body: peacock herl
Rib: red tinsel
Wing: black marabou

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.
