Over The Rainbow Streamer Fly Pattern Recipe
Hook: Mustad 79580 #2
Thread: Black 6/0
Tag: Hot pink flat waxed nylon
Body: Pearl mylar tubing
Wing: Pink, purple, chartreuse, orange, and red bucktail layered with pearl crystal flash
Collar: Chartreuse saddle hackle
Notes: Who hasn’t stood before a majestic arcing rainbow and been inspired and rendered speechless by it’s beauty. Kevin was so inspired by the natural phenomenon that he dedicated a streamer based on the rainbow. Kevin uses a couple strands of crystal flash between each micro stack of bucktail. Let’s hope the pattern leads us to a pot of gold, or at least a slab of scales.
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.
