REAL Teal Blue Silver

A generous fellow fly-fisherman & fly tyer from Oregon sent me some Teal feathers...HOORAY!
I'm not able to tie a BONA FIDE Teal Blue Silver!  Check back a few blog entries to see my "variations".

He sent more than just the barred feathers.  He also sent some Teal feathers that each sport a single spot.  I figured that spot would make a nice "eyespot" on streamers.  So, I tied up a #4 Black Ghost streamer using those eyespot feathers for the "cheeks".

I also tied up a few more of the Teal Blue Silvers....two #8's and one #12.
