Not quite the Answer

After chatting with Ard and finding out his Answer streamer was designed for PA fishing, i decided to give the pattern a go. Mine isnt quite the same, but im fairly happy with it.

I like it. Can you share the recipe or did Ard list it someplace else? Let us know. Thanks in advance!

Ard listed a link in the trout flies thread. I used pheasant feathers for mine. Im not sure how to describe them as i have a full skin from a rooster that i pulled them from. I just went thru and found the ones i like.
But i'll try.
Thread: brown 6/0 uni
Tail: bronze pheasant body feather barred with a sharpie. Two feathers mated so the glossy sides are facing out.
Body: cream colored yarn, stopped wrapping about 3/4 up the shank
Rib: two strands of copper wire wrapped from both directions
Underwing: sparse gray squirrel tail
Overwing: two brown saddle hackle feathers. Again mated so the gloss faces out then barred with a sharpie.
Belly: white craft fur
Cheeks: another pheasant body feather. This one has a white stem that i colored red and yellow
Eyes/over cheeks: jungle cock eyes.
I also tied a small clump of partridge feather just in front of the overwing.
Sorry if this is a crappy recipe.

The bronze feathers for the tail come from the shoulders and the cheeks are from the base of the neck.

I like where you're going with this, Ben. Nice tie!

If you wouldn't mind a few suggestions, I'd be willing to share some thoughts.

PM me if you'd like.
