This a great early season Char fly from the fly tying bench of Josh "Jelly" Gelinas.


  • Hook: Size 4-2 Streamer 2XL
  • Thread: Black 8/0 Uni
  • Bead: Gold Tungsten Conehead
  • Body: Black Peacock Chenille
  • Tail: White Marabou
  • Hackle: Guinea Fowl (longest feathers possible) (Schlappen is a good substitute)
  • Legs: Any rubber legs

This is a go to pattern in the spring, and any fresh Char are suckers for flies like these.

Can be tied with brighter colours for a more intrusive approach but typically I find myself using white or black.

After July though, this flies success rate plummets hard.
