Tag: Flat silver tinsel
Tail: Red schlappen
Body: Red floss
Ribbing: Flat silver tinsel
Throat: Red schlappen
Wing: 4 golden badger hackle
Eye: Jungle cock

Notes: A regal streamer with a distinct lateral line thanks to the dark centred badger hackle. The red body, throat and tail point towards its use as a wounded smelt imitation capable of moving the laziest of the big land locked salmon in the Rangeley region lakes.

    Darren, very nice job, especially the head. I like the tapered sleek look. Also, anything w/golden badger is a fish killer.
