Primrose, The House And The Rangeley Streamer
There's an older home in the town where I live. This home we have driven by a thousand times over the years and we have commented on how we like it so much. There's no particular reason on why we like it but there's just something about it. Well the other day it inspired me to create a streamer fly. The main thought was to incorporate the color "primrose" into the fly. Going through my materials I found that I could use a beautiful primrose yarn I have but the wing was another story.
The yellow saddle hackle I had was much to bright, it was sort of "hard" for a lack of a better word. So what I came up with was to use it along with a white saddle hackle feather. Using the white feather first and placing the yellow feather over it I came very close to primrose.
