Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook

Tag: Silver holographic tinsel
Body: Pale yellow floss on the rear half and orange floss on the front half separated by a mid collar of orange hackle and over wrapped with clear vinyl rib.

Notes: Don has produced some unique streamers and this is no exception. The body of the fly is covered with vinyl rib, giving it more depth through the middle and an interesting scaly look when wet. The strands of Fluoro Fiber in the wing will also catch so tiny glints of light adding the natural look this streamer portrays when it gets dunked.

Don OrdesDon 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.
