Silver Tip II

Hooks - TMC7999 or DAI2441, sizes 4-10

Thread - Black

Tip - Flat silver tinsel

Ribbing - Flat silver tinsel

Body - Black floss

Wing - Black moose hair tied low over the body

Keith Fulsher of Eastchester, New York, originated this pattern in 1960. The silver tinsel ribbing on this pattern should be wrapped so there are equal portions of both black floss and silver tinsel showing.
