Queen of the Waters (varient)
tied by Alex_F
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Hook: #8-12 Partridge Captain Hamilton or similar.
Tail: Red/brown Cock Hackle fibres.
Body: Hot orange Seals fur.
Rib: Oval gold tinsel.
Body hackle: Red/brown Cock hackle.
Wing: Silver grey Mallard flank.
Head hackle: Red/brown Hen hackle.
Tying Instructions: This little beauty should need no introduction to you folks.
The minor variation is the SF body instead of floss as it produces a nice halo effect. The Hen hackle is for a bit more movement when working the fly in still water.
Presentation Tips: A top dropper or 'bob' fly to be worked in or just under the surface. Also useful deeper when Trout are feeding in a Daphnia bloom.
