Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer Hook
Thread: Blue 6/0
Butt: Blue thread
Body: silver mylar tubing
Belly: Red polar bear (sparse and short)
Wing: 6 silver doctor blue hackles
Shoulder: Blue peacock breast then a trimmer peacock eye small
Notes: At first sight I thought Don was breeding some new strain of miniature peacocks, but closer examination reveals what I’ve seen. the shoulder is constructed using a blue peacock feather set behind a smaller trimmed peacock eye, giving the streamer the look of a much larger fly. The use of color is wonderful, and the faint streak of red suggests this fly recently escaped the jaws of a predator, but not before being marked.
Don Ordes – Mr. Fantasy Fly. I don’t know how to describe myself as a fly tier, so I don’t know anyone else could, at least and be accurate. I enjoy all kinds of tying and then some which aren’t even kinds one can explain. I am serious at times, but most times not. I enjoy flies for fishing, but not the ones anyone else fishes.
