Notes: Bob ties many of his creations based around a particular theme or material. In this case, Bob used the duo-toned black and white feather from a silver pheasant as his starting point. The feathers can be found in small numbers on full pelts of silver pheasants, and you may be lucky to find 3-6 matched pairs on a skin. The streamer also uses another scare feather, the spear feather from the jungle cock. The result is a beautifully crafted streamer and something exquisite to behold.

I began tying flies at 13 under the guidance of Lance Wedlick who was well known in Australia more as writer.
