Good morning,

I know how you feel. In the Winter, tying up a few streamer flies, in preparation for the Spring fishing ahead, keeps me from getting cabin fever.

Hope Spring arrives soon for the both of us..........

AH something my dad taught me to do when I was young tying flies and helping with the rods... I even handled the Bow at a young age.. Very tender three year old and her dads Bow had loads of fun... I love the colours ... and they look good.... just where do you go to fish? and Any records?

Hi, Ordo,
Thank you. Much appreciate you taking the time to comment.


Hi SharpshotGal,

Thanks......The flies that are pictured here, are mostly for display, as least for me, these days. However, when I was younger, and able to traverse rivers with fast flowing water and cannon ball sized rocks, I used these flies to fish for Landlocked Salmon and Brook Trout in the Moosehead Lakes Region of Maine. There are many fabled fishing areas up in the Central Maine area. None better than the Rangeley Lakes area which was known for it's record sized Trout and Salmon.

You might be interested to know that a woman by the name of Carrie G. Stevens started tying these flies in the 1930's and was known world wide for her beautiful patterns and their durability. She really perfected this style of streamer fly.

Thank you very much for taking the time to look and comment.
I always enjoy looking at the images you post as they usually give me a different perspective.

Great work, Zig.
No 4 for me is just brilliantly done. Love the background and the detail.
