Cassard

Cassard

Tip: Gold tinsel

Tail: Scarlet, yellow, insect green, barred Mandarin – married *

Hackle: Yellow tied palmer

Ribbing: Gold tinsel

Body: Scarlet floss

Wing: Scarlet, yellow, insect green, barred Mandarin – married **

* The Trout recipe for the tail of the Cassard as assembled here is as originally written, but examination of Dr. Burke’s Color Plate No. 3 painting shows the tail in this order: scarlet, barred Mandarin, yellow, insect green.

** The dressing for the Cassard wing is correct as written and illustrated. Also, whole feather tips of wood duck could be used for the main wing on larger hook sizes with the married color sections along the sides.
