Default Fish Hawk - A Classic Wet

Could not find much on this pattern except that its close relative, the orange fish hawk (soft hackle), can put a serious hurtin' on the fish. Apparently it is a great fish catcher. Good thing this one is going in a display. The body looks weird because I could not get my camera to register that tinsel body correctly.

Fish Hawk
Hook: Mustad 3399, size 6
Thread: Danville's Flymaster 6/0, white
Tail: Brown turkey
Rib: Brown floss
Body: Gold tinsel
Hackle: Brown
Wing: Brown, jungle eye over


There's nought as queer as folk.

"From the end of May to the end of August, a drizzling or thoroughly wet day is the best; next to which is a showery one, and then a bright day with a breeze of wind; a dark day without wind is the worst of all." W.C. Stewart
