I tied this pattern to incorporate the look &
coloration of the spinners used with great success on the Pequannock
River in New Jersey (Black Rooster Tails with Gold Blades). Hopefully
my brother will "Kill" with this pattern (he is for the
most part a C&R angler however)!

on a size 4).
Body - Flat Gold Tinsel
