Hook: Partridge CS15
Body: Gold flat tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Silver pheasant body feather fibers and golden pheasant tippet
Wing: Olive hackle flanked by Coq De Leon hackle
Eyes: Jungle cock
Notes: There is something magical with the way the spotted Coq De Leon feathers blend with other hackles. That combined with the wonderful speckling of the golden pheasant tippet in the throat, presents mottled muted tones seen on many bait fish. The modern piscivore will be please to see this streamer trolled in front of it’s nose and should find it hard to pass up this tempting morsel.
Joel Stansbury – I started tying flies about 1967 in Wausau, Wisconsin when I worked for Kraft Foods. I have been lucky to get lessons from Dick Talleur & Bob Veverka, and a long time friendship and correspondence with John Shewey. I learned Spey flies from John, Streamers & Dee flies from Bob, and everything else from Dick.
