#43-2013 Silver Jungle Streamer – Gary Fraser

Tied by: Gary Fraser
Originated by: Gary Fraser based on the Silver Jungle wet fly

Hook: Mustad 9575
Thread: Orange 8/0
Tail: Orange crystal flash
Body: Silver holographic flat tinsel
Rib: Silver oval tinsel
Thorax: Orange floss or seal dubbing
Hackle: Grizzly hen hackle
Wing: Natural polar bear hair or other white hair tied short
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Orange

Notes: Gary was hit with the inspiration to tie the Silver Jungle Streamer after seeing it in a blog post by Don Bastian. Gary was drawn to the fly because of the orange tones in the fly. Orange is an important colour for Gary, and he puts a lot of confidence into orange patterns for fishing the salmon runs found throughout Cape Breton. Gary ties several variations of the pattern including one featuring a muddler head. The fly proved to be a success even with less than ideal conditions for salmon fishing, and we are expecting some great results for the 2013 season.

Gary Fraser Gary Fraser – Born in Rural Cape Breton I had the luxury of growing up with some of the finest trout and salmon fishing in the world on my doorstep. I am a father of two, an avid outdoorsman, guide and owner of nsflyfishing.com a website used with other guides and anglers to promote fly fishing and fly tying here in Atlantic Canada. I have had little time on the water the last number of years with a young family and working away but things are coming together for a great 2012 season.

    Hi Gary;
    I remember our communication after I posted that Silver Jungle wet fly, the recipe is from Ray Bergman’s book Trout. Always liked that pattern, it’s nice to see it here on Streamers365. Congratulations! Nice work!
