Originated by: Don Soar

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 8xl
Thread: Black
Tag: Silver tinsel
Body: Light grey floss
Belly: Black bucktail then white bucktail
Throat: Peacock sword
Wing: Four light dun hackles

Notes: Don developed this streamer after a big storm that rolled through late 2008. After working " just under 200 hours in a 2 week pay period just to get the roads open", Don put together this streamer to record the event and incorporated a few elements of his experience into the streamer. The overall cool shades in the streamers are for the ice and snow. The thin bunch of black bucktail represents the power lines, and the herls in the throat were placed for the numerous broken pine branches resulting from the storm. Artistry aside, this looks like a wonderful pattern to test a line with.

The GFF money box

… 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.
