Notes: This is the first of many of Carrie Stevens flies to be presented in the project. Peter choose this streamer because it is one that does not get much attention, in fact it has been left out of many of the streamer aficionado literature with only mentions of the pattern or a material listing being mentioned. Other Devils in the series include the Blue Devil and the Red Devil.

Well done Peter. I really enjoy seeing flies with grouse feathers in them! I was unfamiliar with this fly and surprised that it was one of Carrie Stevens. Probably for the reasons mentioned in the write up. Thanks bringing it to light for me.

… 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.
