A Handfull Of "Worry"
Here are a few simple ingredients used to create a pretty effective bucktail streamer. The "Wardens Worry" was first tied in 1930 by Joseph Stickney of Saco, Maine. The original pattern called for a body of wool, "picked out". I could not find such material and used yarn. While I have not fished this pattern here that much, and when I do it's in ponds and lakes where it works on smallmouth and crappie. I have fished it many times in rivers and streams in Maine and with good success with brook trout and landlocked salmon.
This is the first day of Spring 2013. A small stream that wont be seeing dry fly action for awhile. Happy Spring all.
