Notes: This is a beautiful creation Steve has put together with blue and yellow. The combination of these colors also produces some convincing smelty greens. Steve’s recipe calls for golden badger dyed yellow and will produce a bit richer color than a silver badger hackle, but either could be used. To really appreciate the streamer, it should be wet and hanging from the jaw of a bright salmon.
