Variation on a standard wet, using the Stayner Ducktail-style wing.  A different look than married duck quill segments (a lot easier to tie, too) and gives me a chance to put a hen redhead skin to good use.
 
hook - Mustad 3906 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tag - tinsel gold
rib - small wire gold
body - peacock herl
hackle - hen brown
wing - hen redhead neck
 
 
Regards,
Scott

Scott:  This is an exciting pattern.  Very fishy and expertly dressed.  In the tannin stained streams I fish, a touch of scarlet or red would be the cat's meow

Has elements of the very succesful reservoir "streamer type" pattern, caled the "Missionary"  http://www.fish4flies.com/Lures/Fry-and-Small-Fish-Patterns/Missionary

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In some circles, it's also known as the "Northapmton Sandwich" after a certain well know angler was caught using 3 Jacob's "Cream Cracker" dry biscuits, broken up & allowed to float away from the side of a boat, in several large trout fisheries around the Northampton area. They would act as an attractant & he would be catching loads more fish than everyone else put together. This was in the early 70's I'm lead to believe.
