The "Enticer"

A featherwing streamer that I believe will make a fine Autumn attractor especially for brook trout. The colors used in this fly have been associated with those brook trout favorites.



"Enticer"
Hook, Mustad 3665A #4...Body, Orange Floss...Rib, Fine Copper Wire...Throat, Red Hackle tied in to point of hook, followed by Yellow Hackle one half the length of Red Hackle...Wing, 2 Yellow Saddle Hackles, 2 Silver Badger Saddle Hackles...Cheek, Jungle Cock.

  5. Worthy of fishing for sure but also for hanging on the wall in the mancave.

  6. Looks beautiful Brk Trt. Do you glue wings in the Carrie Stevens style when building your gorgeous feather wing flies?

      Yes I do Will. That method is the best way of keeping those feathers in place.

      That is one of Mustads workhorse hooks. It did work well with this fly.
