Sunday’s FOTD on Monday – Finnish Meat Whistle

Finnish Meat Whistle

Hook: Mustad Stinger hook size 2 bent in at the eye

Eyes: Plain lead or brass 

Tail: Olive Finnish Raccoon and flash material

Body: Olive/copper polar chenille and olive schlappen

Legs: Olive round rubber

Collar: Olive Finnish Raccoon and schlappen

This fly was the result of wanting to tie a  Barr’s Meat Whistle to fish in my buddy Adam’s family farm pond yesterday but not having the proper materials to follow recipe exactly.  I’ve got to admit that I didn’t catch a fish on it but it sure did look good in the water.
