Today was one heck of a gloomy day. It seemed as if the weather did not know what to present. It was cloudy, rainy. the sky brightened and then it rained again. I had not tied a streamer in some time and today with the gloomy weather I chose to brighten things a bit with color. All in "Anticipation".......
The streamer is tied in the Rangeley Style. Classic lines with some color.
This streamer is gorgeous! Not only are the proportions balanced oh so well but the colors are just perfect! This is a Petrucci original correct?
Doug, it's a Petrucci original.
Flies like these are just too pretty to fish with.ReplyDelete
Mark after a few fish chew on them the pretty is gone and that's when they start to really produce.
This one needs to be under class, agree with Mark too pretty to fish. I have the four you tied for me under glass---they are really special!! Thanks for sharing
Bill I remember your request. I'm happy they were to your liking.
Hi Alan, That JC cape is impressive. Your streamer brings back memories of trolling for LL and lake trout, at Newfound Lk, in May. Only we fished with an old timer that sewed minnies on, in some special way. Caught a lot of fish. Smoked the lake trout. Delicious cold on bagels for breakfast.ReplyDelete
John I found that on e-bay not to long ago.
Trolling flies and sewed bait is quite popular on Maine lakes. There was a guide-fly tyer on Sebago Lake many years ago named Art Libby. He tied some very sparse trolling flies made of bucktail.
Another outstanding work of art. I agree with the comment above too pretty to fish!! You certainly tie some gorgeous flies and streamers!!
Pete I appreciate your comment....but there's a trout or salmon some where that will eat it.
As always beautiful your fly streamer I like very much, very very nace yes..ReplyDelete
Armando I appreciate your comment.
The streamer is a beauitful representation of the tyers art.
