Default Steve's Green Butt;

A pattern created by Steve Burk of Washington state and added to my box as soon as I discovered it. My renditions are a little fuller in the hackle than those of the originator. Steve is a dedicated steel-header with a knack for developing good ties.

Tie it;

Hook: Partridge #4 single
Tag: Medium flat silver
Body: Rear is Chartreuse chenille, Front is black chenille
Hackle: That is a rump feather from a ring neck pheasant, palmered on the front quarter of the black chenille
Rib: Flat silver over the black front section and over the feather quill to protect from teeth
Wing: Natural bronze mallard
[Tying tip] Be sure to lacquerer the butt of that mallard wing or they will come off during use
