Silver Rat’s again

These are slight variants of the Silver Rat in that the original used flat silver tinsel for the body and gold oval tinsel for the rib.


Here I‘ve used silver holographic tinsel and silver oval tinsel rib. The original dressing as follows

  • Thread – red
  • Tag – oval gold tinsel
  • Tail – golden pheasant crest
  • Body – flat silver tinsel
  • Rib – oval gold tinsel
  • Wing – grey fox guard hairs
  • Hackle – grizzle (I’ve used hen)
  • Head – red

I believe the name Rat, derived from the initials of its originator Roy Angus Thomson
