thread - Danville 6/0 black
rib - small wire gold/Krystal Flask peacock
tail - yarn red
body - Uni-Stretch yellow

hackle - hen brown
collar - peacock herl


mash barb, start thread; tie in ribs, wrap to bend




tie in yarn (extend gap width past bend)

rib wire, helicopter end cover with thread




follow with KF




prep mallard flank, measure (tips just past tail), tie in/trim








tie in (folded) hackle by tip; wrap, tie off/trim






stroke fibers down, cover with thread wraps (sorry for the thumbnail; tied this between coats of primer on kitchen cabinets)

Forty years ago this was our go to pattern for coho in the Harrison River and Dewdney Slough. It was a favourite there of Jack Vincent and Lee Straight. I still carry it and I've caught SRCs on it here on Vancouver Island. Can also be tied on a #8 Mustad 36890 or similar TULE salmon hook. The yarn we use is a creamy yellow and my bag of it says DMC 7727. Nice to see it as it stirs some memories. Thanks Scott.
