#353 Ringer - Glenn Peckel


Tied by: Glenn Peckel
Originated by: Ora Smith
Source: Trolling Flies for Trout and Salmon; Dick Stewart & Bob Leeman 1982 pg.83

Hook: Mustad 3665A
Body: Flat silver tinsel
Wing: Four pale grey saddle hackles
Throat: Fine white bucktail extending almost body length
Shoulder: Lightly marked mallard about 1/3 wing length
Eye: Painted black with white pupil
Head: White with a fluorescent red band at the rear

Notes: This is the last Ora Smith fly in the collection. I love the ringer for, well, the ring on the head. It's another simple (effective) casting streamer with a little quirk. 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.

I don't know this pattern, but it looks like a goodie. Great looking tie!

… 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.
