#299 Pete’s Elliot – Don Ordes

Tied by: Don Ordes
Originated by: Don Ordes

Hook: Mustad 3907A #2
Thread: Red 6/0
Tag: Red thread
Body: Chartreuse holographic braid
Belly: Chartreuse polar bear then shorter yellow polar bear
Throat: Orange polar bear
Wing: 4 grizzly hackle dyed chartreuse
Shoulder: Orange hen hackle then Guinia fowl dyed green
Head: Chartreuse

Notes: This is a wonderful perch imitation using the Fire Tiger colors of chartreuse, yellow and orange. The polar bear belly and throat are tied so that the colors blend smoothly, tapering towards the back of the streamer. The body is a beautiful holographic chartreuse tubing anchored by a red thread tag. The wing is also quite bright and combined with the electric body is an excellent choice for colored waters.

Don OrdesDon Ordes – Mr. Fantasy Fly. I don’t know how to describe myself as a fly tier, so I don’t know anyone else could, at least and be accurate. I enjoy all kinds of tying and then some which aren’t even kinds one can explain. I am serious at times, but most times not. I enjoy flies for fishing, but not the ones anyone else fishes.
