"Vallight"...a featherwing streamer tied in the Rangeley style. The inspiration came from the natural light that filters through the woods to the river valley below.
This streamer is tied on a large hook and is probably best suited to fish as a trolling fly.
Hook, Martinek Rangeley Streamer, size 1-6x long....Body, Wine Yarn....Butt, Peacock Herl....Tag and Rib, Flat Gold Tinsel....Throat, White Hackle Fibers....Wing, Two Olive, followed by Two Brown Saddle Hackles, the Brown about 2/3rds as long....Shoulder, Grouse Back Feather....Cheeks, Jungle Cock.
Very nice tie! Will it go into book number two? (Hint...hint)ReplyDelete
Chris, buddy not at this time.
I really like this color combo, low key colors, but still an attention getter. Thanks for sharing
Bill the colors did blend so well.
That's a nice link between the light in the photo and the colors of the streamer. What streamer patterns would you recommend for an upcoming visit to the Rangeley area? Thanks...ReplyDelete
Walt one could not fish the Rangeley area whithout fishing the Gray Ghost. My choices are the Black Ghost marabou, the 9/3, and a Mickey Finn.
Caddis dries also work and the hornberg.
