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.
