#69-2013 Medicine Streamer – Jim Bennett

Tied by: Jim Bennett
Originated by: Hugh Falkus

Hook: Mustad L-87-3665A #2
Thread: Black 8/0
Body: Silver flat tinsel
Throat: Blue schlappen fibers
Wing: Pearl crystal flash under black arctic fox flanked by thin grizzly saddle hackle

Notes: Jim created his Medicine Streamer based on Hugh Falkus’ famous sea trout and salmon fly. The original pattern features a dark wing made of bronze mallard flank and a red head. The fox wing on Jim’s streamer version will swim beautifully accented by the fine barred grizzly and flash. Something dark and simple to keep in your streamer box.

Jim Bennett – I live in Glasgow Scotland where I was born and grew up.I started fishing in my local canal for perch and roach when I was about 12, forty years ago. I started fly tying at about 14 after I watched a program on TV. I first tied without a vice as I could not afford one. My flies were quite crude to say the least and I can remember the first trout I caught on a small black dry fly. I could not believe it had actually taken my fly. That fish was only about 8 inches, but remains the best fish I have ever caught.

    Nice job there Jim. This one looks like a real fish getter. I’ll have to give this one a try.
