#104 Canopache - Glenn Peckel


Tied by: Glenn Peckel
Originated by: Ora Smith
Source: Trolling Flies for Trout and Salmon; Dick Stewart & Bob Leeman 1982 pg.64

Hook: Mustad 3665A
Body: Flat silver tinsel
Rib: 15 strands of red imitation bucktail, twisted then wrapped
Wing: 10-15 long golden pheasant crest feathers tied flat on top curving downward
Shoulder: Tied flat on top of the wing a dark Guinea hen feather about half the wing length
Head: Fluorescent red thread
Eye: Painted white with red pupil

Notes: This is another of Ora Smith's signature golden pheasant crest winged flies. Because of the amount of feathers tied on at the head, this can be quite a tricky streamer to tie without it getting a fat head. Glenn has put together an amazing set of 12 Ora Smith streamers as his contribution to the Streamers 365 project. We will be auctioning them all together as a set near the end of the project.

The March streamers have now been posted on the auction page and will be open until next Sunday, April 15th. To check out the auctions, visit streamers2012 on ebay.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
