Charlie Maclean SBS

A pattern from the Outer Hebrides island of South Uist, developed by Iain Christie in honor of local gillie Charlie Maclean. I've seen versions with the hackle palmered along the entire length of the body, but thought this one looked pretty cool.


hook - Mustad 3906 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 black
rib - oval tinsel silver
tail - yarn hot orange
body - tinsel silver
hackle (back to front) - hen white, furnace, white


mash barb, start thread, tie in tinsel and wrap to bend

Image


tie in yarn, trim to length (gap width past bend)

Image

Image


tie in tinsel at 2/3 mark, wrap to bend and back again; tie off/trim

Image

Image


counterwrap rib; tie off/trim

Image


tie in (folded) hackle; wrap, tie off/trim

Image

Image


repeat with furnace

Image

Image


finish with white

Image


tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN
