Going Fishing With A Few" Whores"

Good morning. I have to be careful how I continue with this post. The words will be key, and I hope I don't offend anyone. It's true I'm going fishing this day with a few whores. I have fished with these before and have been very lucky.

I'm going to give you some background on these whores. I'm not certain if they are from Montreal. I first came in contact with them in Maine. They were made very popular by Dan Legere of the Maine Guide Fly Shop in Greenville. I first fished these on the Kennebago River just below Little Kennebago lake. They were tossed into the cold waters in the last week of September.. The very first one to bite was a 16 inch salmon.

Below I'll give you some details on how to get these whores to work for you. They love working days, especially in the Autumn time.

Let me introduce you to the "Montreal Whore". This is an attractor pattern that gets attention. I have fished this streamer many times in Maine and has proven itself as a fish taker. The fly is a pretty simple pattern to tie, and the materials are readily available and inexpensive. A lot of shops as well as anglers have gone politically correct in renaming it the "Montreal Floozie" There will be none of that here.


Materials....red and blue bucktail, red Uni-Stretch, silver tinsel, and white marabou.

  1. Alan, these hookers are unusually attractive and are probably a lot of fun to fish with. Thanks for sharing the materials with which to dress 'em!

  3. I actually have a couple of "Montreal Bucktail Whores" in my fly box that I (yeh me) tied. You know me, anything with a cool name like the "Red Naked Lady" fly.

    I think if you "strip" them quickly while using them you will get more for your money!

      Is that so.
      Your right Mel. That streamer works best when you work it fast. Salmon love it.

  12. I just returned from Moosehead and we fished them on the East Outlet of the Kenebec and the Roach. This fly was by far the most successful streamer for the week. I'm going to tie up some little whores and try them on the local streams of RI.
