Red Shang’s Special – D. MacEachern

Red Shang's Special tied by D. MacEachern

Things are starting to quiet down with the move, and I’ve managed to get the tying area set-up again, and have tied a couple streamers. This is a variation of Carrie Stevens’ Shang’s Special that was done by Mike Martinek. I’ve followed Mike’s pattern as closely as possible with the exception of using a red hen hackle cheek rather than the red duck flank Mike uses. Tied on a Mustad 3907B #2.
