Default Canadian Killer Variation, Salmon / Trout

Fall is here in Alaska and almost over. The leaves are just about all down in our woods around the house and I'm back at the tying bench. I will be posting many patterns some of which are widely known, and others that are either obscure or of my own design.

The originator of this pattern is unknown and I resourced it from Joesph Bates' Streamers & Bucktails, (The Big Fish Flies). I have substituted bronze mallard flank for teal in the over wing and hope that change will be attractive to our fish here.

The Recipe;

Hook: Your choice, streamer or salmon single or double.
Thread: Red silk
Tag: Three wraps of flat gold tinsel
Tail: A small bunch of brown hackle fibers
Butt: Natural peacock herl
Body: Red rayon floss
Rib: Oval gold tinsel
Fore Butt: Natural peacock herl
Underwing: Small bunch of red buck tail
Collar: Wound brown hackle tied back
Overwing: Bronze mallard flank tied flat
Head: Lacquered red silk
