Old Fly, Tied For Fun
I was clearing out a wet fly wallet to make room for new ties and came across this. I did this about a year and a half ago and had forgotten about it. It is fishable but appears I was just fooling around with streamers and made it. It's a little lumpy around the tip but still pretty.

Let's call it Golden Brown;


If you want one here's the............. Tying Recipe

Hook: Old Stock, Mustad 3665A 8X long
Thread: Black
Tag: Flat gold tinsel
Tip: Golden yellow floss
Body: Black floss
Ribbing: Golden floss followed by heavy gold oval tinsel
Throat: Golden bucktail sparse over which are a bunch of peacock herl both to the bend of the hook
Wing: Four dark brown saddle hackle
Shoulders: Guinea flank dyed golden yellow
Cheeks: Jungle cock nails
Topping: A golden pheasant crest as long as the wing

The more I look at this, if you make them shorter on a size 4 maybe they would be a good streamer for any kind of trout.

Hey that is a great fly! Is that brown saddle? Very nice, I have never seen anything similar. I think it would work in a lake I used to fish that was stocked with Northern Dace as a food fish. They are black with gold stripes, not a far stretch from this.
