#189 Korinary – Eunan Hendron

Tied by: Eunan Hendron
Originated by: Eunan Hendron

Hook: Allen S401 #4 6xl
Thread: Black
Body: Red floss
Rib: Flat pearl mylar
Belly: White bucktail
Throat: Yellow schlappen
Wing, Married slips of kori bustard, red and yellow goose shoulder
Head: Black

Notes: Eunan wanted to tie a slip wing fly after seeing Stewart’s Hawk featured. So with some kori bustard at hand he married in some yellow and red goose to see how it looked. From these colors came the name and the rest of the fly; yellow gave the nary part, from canary, and when combined with the kori bustard, well, Korinary. The red also reminded Eunan of blood and thus the gruesome serendipitous name is shared with the serious heart condition.

Eunan Hendron – I’ve been tying flies since I was about 10 or 11, a direct progression from fishing stillwater team competitions with my father as a young boy. I began tying classic flies (wet, streamer and atlantic salmon) towards the end of 2011, having never tied them before. A pretty steep learning curve, not for the feint of heart, but many thanks are due to the members of various forums who gave me tips and constructive criticism to aid my progression.
