#36-2013 Silver Rider - Dwayne Miller #36-2013 Silver Rider - Dwayne Miller


Tied by: Dwayne Miller
Originated by: Peter Dube

Hook: Partridge CS15 #4
Thread: Black 8/0
Tip: Silver oval tinsel
Tail: Jungle cock nail
Butt: Ostrich herl
Body: Silver embossed tinsel
Rib: Silver oval tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Wing: Black crystal flash then black bucktail
Shoulder: Teal flank
Eye: Jungle cock nail
Head: Black with a red band

Notes: The Silver Rider found it's genesis as a salmon iron meant for tagging Atlantic salmon in the storied Restigouche River. Dwayne took some liberties with the design, stretching out the body, adding a hint of flash in the wing and adding an elegant touch to the fly with the jungle cock nail tail.

Very nice work here. I love the overall fly, and choice of materials too.

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.
