I can recall a special little flower that folks called a Bachelor Button. It was a pretty little blossom that caught my eye and the name stated with me for all these years. I had the thought of creating featherwing streamer using the colors of this beautiful blue flower. Below is that streamer.
The fly is tied in the Rangeley Style, using a Martinek hook. The body is a purple silk, the tail red hackle, it has a silver tinsel tag, and a peacock twist for the butt. The belly is peacock herl, followed by fine white bucktail, the throat is a splash of bright red hackle. The wing is blue saddle hackle, shoulders are guinea fowl and topped with jungle cock for the eyes.
