#11 Contusion - Bill Chandler

Tied by: Bill Chandler
Originated by: Bill Chandler

Hook: Edgar Sealey and Sons 1797B 1/0
Thread: Black
Body: Green flat tinsel
Belly: Peacock herl then white bucktail
Under-shoulder: Red and purple schlappen fibers
Throat: Red and purple schlappen fibers
Wing: 2 mot mot dyed hackle flanked by black hackle
Shoulder: Kenya Guinea fowl
Eyes: Jungle cock

Notes: The arrival of the Feathers MC ‘Funky Feathers’ line has given new inspiration to many streamer tyers, and given way to a whole new breed of streamers. The Kenyan Guinea fowl shoulder is a nice touch on this bruiser. Lots of banged up blues and purples and a shiner of a body with the green tinsel.

Bill ChandlerBill Chandler – I have been tying flies for the Angler and the collector since 1978. I discovered fly fishing and fly tying by watching a Canadian angling show one Saturday morning. Since then I have spent a considerable time of my life learning both the old and new techniques of tying flies.
