#63-2013 Orange Sherbert – Kevin Kirkelie

Tied by: Kevin Kirkelie
Originated by: Kevin Kirkelie

Hook: Mustad 79580 #1
Thread: Black 6/0
Tail: Golden pheasant tippets
Body: Light orange floss
Rib: Gold flat tinsel
Wing: Orange bucktail then white bucktail
Collar: Golden pheasant tippet tied in clumps to form the collar
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black

Notes: At first glance, Kevin’s Orange Sherbert looks like a throw-back to Carrie Stevens’ Golden Witch or perhaps the Lady Ghost. Kevin uses a novel approach to create the collar on the fly. He uses small sections of golden pheasant tippet to surround the head. The result is a boldly colored, full looking shoulder / throat. Kevin also stipulates that the orange bucktail in the wing should be tied slightly longer than the top white portion of the wing.

Kevin Kirkelie Kevin Kirkelie – In having a Grandfather who was a avid fisherman, I was hooked at a early age. So…from my dad’s handy craftsmanship, he made me a homemade vise to start tying with, so that set the stage for what turned out to be my greatest artistic passion ever.
