Notes: This fly takes advantage of the FeathersMC specialty dyed line of feathers called Funky Feathers. Barry used the perch inspired Fire Tiger colored feathers to tie this attractor pattern. It was initially tied just for fun as something nice to look at, but a trial run through some Northern Alberta lakes suggests that the Rainbow trout population have taken a liking to Barry’s streamer as well.

Barry PhillipsBarry Phillips – Born in 1953 and have been tying flies since I was 14. Started out spin fishing and became interested in fly fishing and tying through a childhood friend. I was given a Herters Manual and taught myself. I met a man named Reg Denny who ran a flytying shop in Edmonton and sat in on one of the courses he was teaching at the time. He asked me after three classes if I would be interested in assisting him and there began 25 years of teaching and a lifelong friendship.

    Barry, is the tail and wing topping made of married turkey dyed feathers on your Jenning fly?

      Petr, goose or swan is usually used for the married shoulder on the Lord Iris. Barry Didn’t tie the Lord Iris, it was Ted Patlen.
