Silver Doctor Fly
The Silver Doctor is a gaudy fly, good for trout and bass, and usually costing much more than the other kinds. The body is silver tinsel with a winding of red silk. The tag is red and the tail of a golden pheasant hackle. The wings are made of wild turkey feather in under, wood duck on top and the remainder in mixed red and yellow fronds. The hackle is blue. It is the difficulty of getting materials for this fly that makes it so costly, and it is difficult to make, too.
