#257 Janine Marie - David Mac #257 Janine Marie - David Mac


Tied by: David Mac
Originated by: David Mac

Hook: Martinek Carrie Stevens hook #1 10X Long
Thread: Black
Body: Light blue floss
Rib: Silver Mylar tinsel (size 10)
Belly: Light blue bucktail with white bucktail tied under
Throat: White hackle
Wing: Two pink grizzly saddle hackles (*) flanked by two white saddle hackles
Shoulder: White turkey flat over which is tied a Black Francolin with double eyes
Eyes: Jungle cock

Notes: This is a beautiful bright pattern that was commissioned for Mr. and Mrs. William Dawes for their annual Maine fishing vacation. The pink grizzly feathers should be tied in slightly higher than the flanking white hackle so that it forms a razorback. The distinct white spots of the Black Francolin help define the gill plate and offer up a hard target for waiting predators.

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.
