Roger's Comments On This Pattern

Named for Big Diamond Pond in Stewartstown, NH. I have found this streamer to be a productive casting & trolling streamer here in northern Vermont, an area not far from the Diamond ponds. The pattern, with the exception of the shoulders & topping, is the same as I used in the early 50's on the Diamonds. The Big Diamonds I used at that time had shoulders made from the black & white barred Mandarin body feather. The horns are replaced by topping which is the result when the original pattern is fished. I encourage you to try this streamer in sizes 6-10 for casting, and in larger sizes and tandems for trolling.
