Tail: Scarlet wool tag (short) *
Hackle: Black tied palmer
Body: Peacock herl
* The wool tag ‘tail’ is originally listed as a ‘tip.’ A wool or floss ‘tag’ is usually short, no longer than the hook bend and bears far more resemblance to a tail than to a tip. The Black Palmer Red Tag pattern recipe is identical to the Zulu, with the exception that the hackle on the Zulu is generally more oversized.
