Here are a few photos of a streamer that was in used in combat. They show the the shape of a sleek bait fish, the shape that will draw a predatory fish to strike.
Notice that the shoulders and the jungle cock highlight the point of the head of the fish. This would be the area a predator would strike. By hitting the bait fish here would stun and incapacitate the fish and make it easier to complete the meal.
This is why the use of a shoulder feather and a jungle cock nail on a feather wing streamer is important.
I would have liked to show this streamer in the mouth of a 20 inch brown, that has not happened........as of yet.
Thin sliced chicken breast, chopped parsley, garlic, Romano cheese. Rolled up and secured with toothpicks. Then browned up in a frying pan in olive oil. It's then placed in a baking dish with seasoned tomato sauce and baked for an hour or so. Then remove tooth picks slice and serve with penne pasta.
What could be more rewarding after a cold day chasing browns with a streamer. A Poudre Canyon Special, streamer.

Nice look to that streamer. I could use that meal after hiking some those high gradient streams I've been fishing! :)ReplyDelete
Alan, you are killing me...way to early to be looking at pictures of such a good looking meal :)ReplyDelete
Not sure if I come here for the food or the streamers... Great post Alan, Love the profiles of the wet streamers. bang on!ReplyDelete
nice fly , next time we seee it i'm sure it will be in a big brownie. What feather did you use for the shoulder. widgeon?ReplyDelete
I've seen photos of those streams, and the meal would serve you well.
Just trying to make your day a bit brighter.
I feel like Pavlov's dog, drooling over a picture of food.ReplyDelete
The streamers will keep you coming back I hope. The food is aimed at the mellow side of us anglers
I'm sure going to try to make that happen. The shoulder feather is a Mallard flank feather dyed yellow.
The meal and streamer look delicious :)ReplyDelete
Great looking streamer. I've always wondered how traditional feather streamers look when wet. I admit that I have never fished one.ReplyDelete
Tasty looking meal too.
Pavlov's dog. I would have thought you would have said a brookie drooling over a sparrow.
They really give a good impression of a bait fish. Add a bit of floatant to one side so the streamer floats a bit and you have a injured bait fish, even more appealing.
Thanks Alan ive got all the marterials i'll give it a bash,and see if salmo trutta escotia approves!ReplyDelete
Streamers have certainly withstood the test of time and will continue to be irresistible to our wily quarry, and we need all the help we can get.. Speaking of time tested .. delicious home cooked meals such as those that often show up on SSR...NICE!!ReplyDelete
When you tie one up I sure would love to see it. And when that brown eats it I would enjoy seeing that too.
Certain styles of flies will always have appeal. Thanks for the compliment on the meals.
