Peacock & Tinsel comes from the bench of Salmonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.

Bill's notes: "We all love peacock as a tying material that is just “fishy”. I created this fly to be a logical extension of the Love’s Lure. Not that long ago it was difficult to obtain the Blue Peacock feathers for flytying. Here we have all peacock- tail, body, hackle, and wing."
