Raske's Introduction: The three original Carrie Stevens Patterns on this page are shared with us from Mike Martinek's private collection with his comments.
HISTORY: A cute little trout streamer tied on a forged Limerick hook, return eye. This hook was used late in her tying career, an Allcock or Mustad. Circa 1945
HISTORY: Very attractive carrie stevens pattern not common among flies of hers that survive. Circa 1935
HISTORY: This old trolling fly shows the slim baitfish profile which made her flies famous, and distinct. This is also tied on a 12XL Allcock hook,the same hook that the "Greyhound" is dressed on in Joseph Bates' streamer book. Not a common hook. Circa late 1920's
