#198 Boston Blackie - Monte Smith


Tied by: Monte Smith
Originated by: Carrie Stevens
Source: Forgotten Flies, Schmookler & Sils (1999)

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek 8 XL, #1
Body: Flat silver tinsel
Throat: Black, then white bucktail
Wing: Peacock herls and a total of four black saddles
Shoulder: Green phase golden pheasant body feathers
Cheek: Jungle cock

Notes: Monte says:
"A fly that drew my attention the minute I bought the Carrie Stevens Rangeley Favorites poster."


It looks like this may have been from a private collection. The Boston Blackie isn't a common streamer, but it is quite something to look at. It does not appear outside of Schmookler & Sils writings (that I can find), but it does fit Carrie's style quite nicely.

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.
