After tying and posting the Poudre Canyon Special, my friend Midgeman made mention of a western streamer called the Platte River Special. I did some research on the net and couldn't find much on it. Midgeman promptly sent me two photos of the streamer, one very good looking fly and the other well not so good looking. The colors used in the fly seem to represent brown trout fry, and parr. So taking these colors I set out to tie the streamer in the Rangeley Style.
