Notes: Barry created the streamer for his good friend and fellow angler Gray Lysechko. The fly has been a proven success with brown trout in the lakes Barry fishes. Barry dressed up this one with the added touch of golden pheasant crest in the topping and tail to frame out the wing. The olive and dun hackles in the wing combine to create a convincing minnow body colored streamer. Perfect for the piscivorous brown trout, bass and pike.

Barry PhillipsBarry Phillips – Born in 1953 and have been tying flies since I was 14. Started out spin fishing and became interested in fly fishing and tying through a childhood friend. I was given a Herters Manual and taught myself. I met a man named Reg Denny who ran a flytying shop in Edmonton and sat in on one of the courses he was teaching at the time. He asked me after three classes if I would be interested in assisting him and there began 25 years of teaching and a lifelong friendship.
