Feather Fish

A "must-have-in-the-box" is a streamer that imitates baitfish - often when, for example, a trout reach a certain size they change their diet to smaller fish, and even an selective dry fly-eating trout can be tempted by a large mouthful. The skilled German flytyer and flyfisher Oliver Oelze has taken advantage of this in his Feather Fish, where the transparent silhouette of the baitfish is perfectly recreated with trimmed hackles from the speckled Coq De Leon hackle feathers.

Hook: NS172 Curved gammarus
Thread: White
Tail: Two tan Coq De Leon hackles, cut to “fish-shape”
Body: Senyo’s Laser Dub - Fl. Hot Orange

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.
