#188 Honeysweet – David Mac

Tied by: David Mac
Originated by: David Mac

Hook: Martinek Carrie Stevens hook #1 10X Long
Thread: Black
Body: Silver Mylar tinsel, size 10
Rib: Oval silver tinsel, size small
Throat: Pale yellow hackle
Belly: Peacock blue bucktail
Wing: Two yellow olive saddles, topped with two pale yellow saddles,
Shoulder: White turkey flat
Cheek: 2 blue peacock breast feathers each side
Eyes: Jungle cock

Notes: The contrast between the deep greens and blues of the peacock and the pale watery yellow hackles really gives this streamer a fresh summer feeling. It reminds one of cold melons, and a crisp spring fed streamer where it could be cast to the noses of big lethargic brown trout. It was created on a commission for Mr. Charles Sweet of Vermont in June 1997.

David MacDavid 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.
