#54 Baby Brown Trout - Jon Harrang


Tied by: Jon Harrang
Originated by: Jon Harrang

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek/Carrie Stevens streamer hook size 6, 8XL
Body: Copper mylar (copper-colored saltwater flashabou)
Rib: Oval copper tinsel, small
Belly: Approx. 6 strands of fine peacock herl followed by a small bunch of white bucktail.
Wing: Tied in as 2 separate units with shoulders, with each side consisting of a dark brown saddle hackle flanked on the outside with a Cree-colored India neck hackle.
Shoulder: Mallard flank feather dyed brown
Eyes: Small Jungle Cock
Throat: Schlappen fibers, dark brown
Head: Black Benecchi 12/0

Notes: Jon ties a deadly looking streamer. The cree hackle is a perfect mimic for the par markings on young trout. This is a great little casting steamer. Check out how small the head on the streamer is, I would be happy if my dry flies had heads that tiny.

… 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.
