tied by gustig
Fly Type: Streamers,
Target Species: Sea Trout,
Recommended Region: Other,
Hook: Size 4
Body: Gold tinsel, embossed gold tinsel
Wing: Squirrel to match tail, jungle cock wing feathers and jungle cock eye feathers
Head: Bright orange
Tying Instructions: Easy to tie, first I take a small amount of hair from the tail beginning(close to the cut), tie in and the I tie fasten the gold embossed tinsel. Next I tie in the gold tinsel, glue hook body and wrap tinsel over.
Next I wrap embossed tinsel reverse.
Tie wing hairs, then throat hair. I try to have the tail and wing hairs even, that is if you fold the wing it should be of equal lenght and the tail.
I then tie jungle cock wing feathers (I personally allways glue them after a few rounds of thread and let them dry) and then I fasten the jungle cock eye feathers, finish with a nice size head.
