Hook: Partridge CS15 #2

Throat: Gadwall flank

Notes: It isn’t a streamer I often see, in fact I had never seen or heard of until I found it in Hilyard’s book. Named for the nearby deep water pond and town of the same name, the Embden has a bright coloration. I find this to be one of the more elegant streamers in Carrie’s portfolio and quite enjoy the unusual combination of color in the wing.
