Default Re: Classic New Zealand Streamers

Thanks Chris for the info.
Pocono,great fly for your first attempt,I had several goes at getting it right when I first tried many years ago,the worst part is selecting two identical matching paired feathers.
Another trick I & many others use is to place one or two,sometimes slightly darker feathers or lower quality feather between the outer ones to save the good ones a for the outers.
I have tied Olive,Black,Red,Black & Red Matukas as well as most of Chris's Flies,I like the Cree & The Black Centred Brown Hackle Feathers.
Also with the larger flies I use the larger round or oval tinsel.
Brian.
