Chile Pepper - This NZ Killer-style pattern originated in Chile - hence the spelling of the name - as a sea trout pattern found to be a nice immature carp pattern in North America! This 2X2 actually uses a hook and thread and 2 different feathers from a Golden Pheasant pelt. Quite economical for such a well-travelled pattern! And it uses the Mickey Finn colors.
