Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Carrie Stevens hook #1 10xl
Body: Red floss
Rib: Silver Mylar tinsel,size 10
Throat: White hackle
Wing: Two white saddle hackles flanked by two red saddle hackles
Shoulder: Red Guinea fowl over Wood Duck breast feather
Notes: A majestic red pattern commissioned in 1980 for use in West Grand Lake, Maine by Mr. Steven MacDonald from the UK. I like the blended shoulder of wood duck and guinea fowl and the thick vertical profile of the streamer. This should be a great streamer to troll with early in the season in shallow waters and near the surface.
The April streamers have now been posted on the auction page and will be open until next Sunday, May 13th. To check out the auctions, visit streamers2012 on ebay.
David Mac – I have been tying flies since 1964 and it has brought me, countless hours of enjoyment. As a young guest at the United Fly Tyers meetings in Boston, MA I was introduced to Streamers by many of the Great Tyers. In the 1970′s I spent a decade providing streamers to many of the best Maine Fly Shops and Camps.
