Roger's Comments On this Pattern

During July of 1994 I found this style of streamer to be very effective for blind casting to Landlocks & Rainbows that were surface feeding on smelt on Willoughby Lake in Northern Vt.Using a Cains River streamer as a dropper & skittering the dropper on the surface resulted in salmon & rainbows hitting both the dropper and tail fly. Fascinated by the streamer previously, I began to experiment with it and have found it to be effective for all trout species as well as landlocks. I use this style of streamer, both casting and trolling, tied with standard streamer hooks as well as the #3906. My favorite patterns are: Scotch Lassie, Kidder and a chartreuse version of the Highlander.
