Notes: Eunan tied this one of a kind streamer to commemorate the sinking of the great ship Titanic 100 years ago. Each element of the fly has some significance. The colors of the throat, body and tail were chosen for the hull of the ship. The long sweeping white goose in the throat signifies the white lateral stripe just below the open decks. The JC, with 4 eyes for the 4 funnels. The silver tag and rib for the glamour of the maiden voyage. The white wing is for the clear cold night and smoke from the funnels and finally the topping for the lights of the ship.
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.
