Copper swap

A discussion on the New England Streamer List began on the merits of copper as a material in streamer tying. It seems the consensus was that copper has always been a productive "metal" in the pursuit of landlocked salmon or trout in New England



A discussion on the New England Streamer List began on the merits of copper as a material in streamer tying. It seems the consensus was that copper has always been a productive "metal" in the pursuit of landlocked salmon or trout in New England. The relative lack of streamer patterns which used this material (compared to silver and gold tinsels, etc.) was the only spark we needed to generate interest in this swap!

The rules were very simple for this swap. Any original or established streamer pattern could be submitted as long as at least one of the materials was copper, or copper-colored. The results are listed below. Enjoy!
