Platinum Blonde


Platinum Blonde

Category Saltwater

Mustad 34007 #2


Fine Clear Mono   

Tail White Bucktail
Body Flat Silver Tinsel
Wing White Bucktail

Platinum Blonde was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.   See many more of his flies at his page on this site, The Flies of William Lovelace.

Bill's Notes: This is the Joe Brooks pattern that started it all. This is tied in the original Brooks high wing style that he thought gave it a breathing action in the water while it is stripped.
