Holmfridur Streamer

I found out about this Icelandic streamer in 1991, and it has found a place in my fly box ever since. It is a great warmwater and coldwater streamer, and a super easy fly to tie.

Body: No body! Instead, tie a small bulb of red tying silk or estaz (pictured) to help offset the wing;

Wing: Brown over yellow marabou;

Beard: Red or orange hackle fibers mixed with flashabou.



That is truely awesome! No body!
I never think about this way... Lot's if free movement for sure! Thanks!

Thanks Mark...

That's the reason I really like it, and it is a great color combination for all freshwater fishing.
