Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Streamer Hook #1 8xl
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Underwing: Peacock herl 4-6
Under-shoulder: Red and yellow schlappen fibers
Throat: Red and yellow schlappen fibers
Wing: Gray hackle flanked by light blue hackle
Shoulder: Lavender guinea fowl
Eyes: Jungle cock
Notes: This is a beautiful trolling smelt pattern with just a smattering of color thrown in. The blend of red and yellow schlappen on the front end of the streamer is like the flames painted on the vintage muscle car. The light blue and grey hackles in the wing melt into the lavender guinea fowl shoulder, no doubt any salmon worth its mettle would chase this streamer down for a tangle in the atmosphere.
Bill Chandler – I have been tying flies for the Angler and the collector since 1978. I discovered fly fishing and fly tying by watching a Canadian angling show one Saturday morning. Since then I have spent a considerable time of my life learning both the old and new techniques of tying flies.
