I'm in the process of tying a few striper flies for a friend including the olive/white hybrid pictured in the opening post of this thread and thought it would be fun, and useful, to tie one imitating a tinker mackerel as Atlantic mackerels are present in good number in the Baie-des-Chaleurs where this friend and I fish for stripers.

 

And I used  Bill Catherwood's Tinker Mackerel as a "model" for this. On a Mustad S71S #2/0 hook, about 5" long.20210413_155104.jpg.21dad1ecb3a998509f0300bb95321558.jpg

The instructions for tying Eric Leiser's original Black Angus streamer are given in his The Book of Fly Patterns, pages 203-5, along with the story of how he developed it.  It's a book every fly tyer needs to have.  Misiura's video shows an adaptation of the original.

I have Eric Leiser's "The Complete  Book of Fly Tying" which gives the dressings for a few saltwater fly patterns but unfortunately not for not the Black Angus. And I can't find it on Internet. So, if you do have it, I'd appreciate if you could post it.

I am away from home for a few days but will find it when I get back.

Mercirf, it's much appreciated. No doubt Gartside's Beastmaster General has roots in this one. 

 

And I'm curio us about that "French" moniker of yours,  Moucheur2003.

It's just coincidental. I had just returned from a salmon fishing trip in Quebec when I started poking around on social media websites.

I'm a Québécois and was heavily into Atlantic salmon fishing for 25 years, mostly in the Gaspé. So what salmon rivers have you fished up here?
