For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

"Skipper" a streamer created with the use of furnace badger hackle incorporated in the wing. Badger hackle has that predominate natural stripe running down the canter of the feather which forms a nice clean natural look to the streamer as well as a more realistic look to a forage fish.
Do fish see in color? Some say yes and some say no. The black and white photo of Skipper shows the distinct lines of the badger feather, along with the white throat. This along with the sheen from the peacock herl is probably enough to draw a strike.

These two streamers. "Beau" and "Skipper" each tied with badger hackle. Beau with Silver Badger, and Skipper with Furnace Hackle.
