Hook: #6-10, 5-7x long streamer
Body: Mylar or silver Lagartum tinsel
Throat: Green hackle fibers
Wing: Red saddle hackles (inside, grizzly saddle hackles outside)

Savage Flies is a project with the mission of encouraging and teaching fly tying to as many people as possible. The channel is named after one of my western Maryland homewaters, the Savage River. I’ve been uploading at least three new videos a week (usually Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday).
