The flies pictured below are described in Harold H. Smedley's book 'Fly Patterns and their Origins":

a yellow and white floss body, wound hard, with a narrow strip of silver tinsel. The tail was composed of the yellow fibers from the crest of the Chinese golden pheasant. The red and yellow hackle was full. The wings were narrow feathers of the wood or summer duck with black and white bars."

I varied the tinsel width, and the order of the throat hackles between the two flies. Both are tied on the size 1 hooks.

Your ties just continue to amaze me. Works of art on a hook.

That's a bit different than the C.E. Orvis tie. Did Smedley spell it "Jo" or was that a typo on your part? (I'm guessing the former.) I usually see it as "Joe".

Both are lovely ties, although I think I might prefer the second to the first.

the spelling is as per the book, bearing in mind Tomah Jo was a native American.

Yes very well done. I would have to agree with Jerry. The strip wing takes my vote.
