Celtic Beauty is an original fly designed for Atlantic salmon by contributing fly tyer Gary Tanner. This attractive fly recently hooked 14 fish in one morning on the Miramichi. You can read about that adventure and the history of the fly on Gary's blog, The River's Course. See more of his flies on his contributor page, The Flies of Gary Tanner.

Celtic Beauties

Gary's Notes: I named this fly for its rich Celtic colors, and for its roots in Carrie Stevens' Green Beauty streamer.
