Little Bucktails for Brookies

Bucktails Logo

A swap organized over the Streamers@ mailing list

Back a few months ago on the Streamers@ mailing list, one of the discussion-group participants (don't worry Bob, you'll go nameless) admitted that he had no small bucktails in his streamer box; and querried the group to recommend patterns. Subsequently, over a dreary January weekend, with 74 days, 9 hours & a few assorted minutes until opening day in Maine, the idea for this swap was spawned. In addition to gracing these pages, the swap served to fill quite a few streamer boxes with a delightful variety of "little bucktails for brookies."

This swap has gathered a collection of patterns from diverse sources, including Maine regional favorites (such as the Warden's Worry and Edson Tigers), patterns from the wider northeast (e.g. the Shushan Postmaster), regional patterns from the West and from Alberta (Atom Bomb & McNab), old Atlantic salmon fly adaptations (the Professor), and newly created patterns (South Branch Chub, Grey Fox, Green Parrot). They all share three things in common - hair wings, small hooks, and a tremendous attraction to brook trout.
