Hairwing Mickey Finn

Hook: TMC 777SP #6
Thread: Red/Black UNI 6/0
Body: UNI-Mylar
Rib: Lagartun French Tinsel
Wing: Red/Yellow hair

A hairwing version of the classic Mickey Finn streamer. Normally you would see this in bucktail, but I wanted to have a smoother wing that flowed even more than bucktail (and I have alot of templedog/fox/raccoon), so a hairwing version it is. I might go over and varnish the body to strengthen it, but I used a fairly thick and solid rib, so I don’t think I will need to do that.
