• Black Pennell

Is there anyone that hasn't at least a number of these throughout their fishing fly collections? This is one of the greatest flies of all time, composed simply of some Golden Pheasant tippet for the tail, a black body (of Seals Fur or Floss), and a long black hackle, tied at the head, cloaking the body. The pattern will catch all of the species as it is a hugely representative pattern in the larger sizes, and extremely imitative in the smaller sizes, particularly of chironomids etc. Created in the late 1800's by H. Commonly Pennell, this pattern still makes the 'Top 10' of many anglers.
