Clyde's Comments On This Pattern


I call the pattern the "RB Supervisor." It stands for Rangeley-style Blue Supervisor. In trying to come up with a pattern for the swap I kept coming up with road-blocks - already taken, already on your www site, or material issues. So I decided to take one of my favorite streamer patterns for fishing the Moosehead area and convert it to a Rangeley-style streamer. I am very pleased with the results, and if the pattern proves itself this spring, I may be replacing the Blue Supervisor that I normally tie. Here's the pattern I normally tie for comparison.

Blue Supervisor
  • Thread: black or olive (the trout at a particular pond in Maine prefer olive over black for thread choice)
  • Hook: casting streamer
  • Tail: Short tuff of red yarn
  • Body: Flat silver tinsel
  • Underwing: White Bucktail
  • Wing: 1pr of white saddles over 2pr of light blue saddles
  • Topping: 3 or 4 strands of peacock herl
