"Grizzly Green"

I have an assortment of grizzly patches dyed various colors. I have selected a few of these to create a series of streamers using grizzly as the main feather. The first of the series features a grizzly dyed green.

The name selected for the streamer....."Grizzly Green"

Here is the recipe. Hook, Mustad 94720....Body, Orange Yarn....Rib, Fine Embossed Gold Tinsel...Belly, Lavender Bucktail...Throat, Red Hackle...Wing, 2 Olive, 2 Green Grizzly Saddle Hackles....Cheek, Jungle Cock.

      My good man that's a very tough question.
      For brookies it would be red, and yellow. For browns, probably olive, brown.

      It would work well on those cutts and bows you fish for.

  7. Superb, Alan! One of my favorite Regional streamers has a combination of Green and Orange. It has caught lots of fish for me over the years. However, this beautiful streamer has trout written all over it. Thanks for sharing.
