Tying with Woodduck Flank - Streamers


By Bob Petti

Rangeley streamers make for a wonderful combination of craft and art. As functional as they are beautiful, they are starting to get more attention among fly tyers and anglers. This sample of a Grizzly Prince was inspired by some flies sent to me in a swap by my friend Lindsey Grandison. I find the combination of colors and materials particularly attractive.

Hook:
Long shank streamer, in this case Mustad 94720

Orange Hackle Barbs

Our resident streamer guru Bob Skehan is a big fan of this flatwing style streamer, the Wood Special. It's a killer brook trout pattern, both in ponds and streams.

George,

Sorry for the confusion here - this page was titled Prince Nymph by mistake. It's about streamers. We have a lot about the Prince Nymph here and here.
