"Indian Rock"


In the western Maine mountains lies a series of lakes. These lakes are a destination of many.anglers. They come here to fish for brook trout and salmon.
Scattered within these lakes are numerous rivers, many offer great fishing for the same trout and salmon as the lakes provide.
The river I write of today is the Kennebago, in particular the place where it meets Cupsuptic Lake. There is the place they call Indian Rock. Located there is the Oquossoc Angling Association. It's one of the oldest fishing organizations in the country which was established in the 1870's.

The streamer I created is named for this special place on the Kennebago.

    Nice location in Maine. The Streamer is beautiful as always.

    I too use two flies named after the Kennebago area of Maine. The Kennebago Wulff & The Parmachene Wulff. Brookies love them both even when nothing else works, especially the Parmachene.

  2. The water looks a bit low at the time of the photo Brk Trt. Is your streamer a new creation or a tried and true one?

  4. Another great streamer! Where in the world does one get lavender bucktail? You really should think about a coffee table book with your streamers.

  6. DRYFLYGUY,
    Thanks.
    The Kennebago Wulff is a killer. That Parmachene Wulff is one I'll tie and give it a try.
    Thanks for the links.

    penbayman,
    Thanks.
    That photo was taken around the last week of September. The streamer is a new creation.

  7. AYearOnTheFly,
    Thanks.
    I know with out a doubt you would love it. A to top it off a nice 20 inch salmon to run you around.

    Kiwi,
    Thanks.
    I don't remember where I purchased it. But my grand daughter might know...it's a favorite color of hers.

    Johnny Utah,
    Thanks.
    Now your talking, just bring a platinum charge card.

  8. OK, this is getting spooky. I have that streamer sitting right here on my desk. How? Last night at our TU December social meeting, we had our traditional 3-fly Yankee gift swap. That was one of the three flies in the gift I selected. It is too beautiful to fish and I was thinking of some way to display it. Were you there? Did one of Santa's helpers do the secret fly swap? Another Christmas miracle? I think SO!
    Merry Christmas

  9. Shoreman,
    Thanks.

    Gerry,
    Thanks.
    I would sure love to see a photo of the fly you received. This streamer is my creation. I think Santa needs to explain.

  11. I compared the recipe you posted with the fly I have. There are similarities, but after closer scrutinay there are major differences. The fly I have has a body of flat gold tinsel ribbed with oval silver tinsel; has two black saddle hackles with magenta saddles over them and then smaller black saddle hackles. Same peacock herl and magenta bucktail belly/throat and jungle cock cheeks. The magenta saddle hackles make it look similar to what you posted, but clearly a different pattern. My bad - my usual gift of a lump of coal will be my punishment - or maybe the Grinch was somehow involved?

  12. Beautiful fly pattern...I can't imagine tying it on the end of my line as it looks too much like a work of art. Although , the more I think about it I'm quite sure it would look just as appealing in the corner of a beautiful brookies mouth.

  13. WDSTK3,
    Thanks.

    Gerry,
    Thanks.
    From your description it sounds like a beautiful streamer.
    I'm sure Santa's visit will be good.

    HighPlainsFlyFisher,
    Thanks.
    Now that you speak of it....it would look good in the lip of a brook trout.
