"Toothaker"

A place located about 320 miles north from where I'm writing this post is where I'll be the last week of September. In this photo taken from the cabin we stay at, the area to fish is about 10 miles, that is as the crow flies. The region I speak of is Rangeley, Maine, and the cabin is on Rangeley Lake. At this time of year the lake can produce some fine fishing for landlocked salmon and brook trout. But I choose to fish the tribs of the lakes in search of the same quarry.

One of those tributaries is the Cupsuptic River. The river where it enters the lake by the same name can be good fishing, I seek out the streams in and about the area.

"Toothaker"

"Toothaker" a streamer I created and tied and so named for the streams of this area.

Hook, Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer...Tail, Two Jungle Cock Breast Feathers...Butt, Gray Ostrich...Body, Yellow Yarn...Rib, Embossed Gold Tinsel...Throat, White and Red Hackle...Wing, Two Yellow, and Two Silver Badger Saddle Hackles...Shoulder, Ringncked Pheasant...Cheeks, Jungle Cock.
 The fishing opportunities. See you in September.

  1. Hi Alan...what a beautiful picture from the cabin.

    I was in Bangor for work a couple of weeks ago and I mentioned Rangeley to one of the guys from work who lives in Maine and he painted a picture in my mind's eye that looked exactly like the one you took.

    I have to get up there one of these days.

    Great stuff.

  2. If you see a black Lund creeping around the lake while you're there, send out a wave. Who knows we might be able to hookup in more ways than one!

      Thanks.
      When we go I'll give a shout. Perhaps we might toss a few streamers.

      They have some beauties up there.
      Rangeley Streamers are truly eye candy.

    Thanks.
    Western Maine in general, but Rangeley tops it.
    I know if you visit, you'll be back.

  5. Not a bad place to spend a week relaxing. I'm sure your streamer will be rewarded.

  6. Love that first shot...makes me wish I was sitting on the front-porch just watching the sun disappear.
    Hopefully I've got my spam issues taken care of and you can once again see my comments.
