#133 Dad's Streamer aka G.S. Special - Robert Galante

Originated by: Lou Galante and Dick Surette

Notes: The fly was originally tied by Dick Surette. Robert and his father were regular patrons of Dick Surette's fly shop in North Country NH during Robert's teenage years. His father Lou had an idea for a fly he wanted to have tied for trolling the Connecticut lakes. He and Dick discussed the particulars for some time before coming up with this finalized version. Robert's father did end up fishing it in the Third Connecticut lake and did very well. In addition to being an effective trolling pattern, Robert also finds the streamer to be perfect for casting when tied up in smaller sizes. The fly was unnamed, but Robert wanted to give this fly a name and Dad's Streamer seemed most appropriate. Another awesome brookie fly!

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
