Tied by: Don Ordes
Originated by: Don Ordes

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer hook
Thread: White
Tag: Oval gold tinsel
Body: Yellow, orange and red seal dubbing wrapped with yellow floss
Belly: Red squirrel tail
Throat: Peacock sword
Underwing: Peacock sword (long)
Wing: 2 orange hackles flanked by 2 burnt orange coq de leon hackles on each side

Notes: Don's creative side shows through with the Majestic. The pattern relies on the natural shimmer of peacock and seal to provide color and flash. The body is unique among streamers with just graduated whispers of hair flowing along the hook shank.

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.
