Source: Carrie G. Stevens: Maker of Rangeley Favorite Trout and Salmon Flies - Hilyard Pg. 144, 145

Hook: Partridge Cs15
Thread: Red 6/0
Tag: Flat silver tinsel
Tail: Red schlappen
Body: Red floss
Ribbing: Flat silver tinsel
Throat: Red schlappen
Wing: 4 golden badger hackle
Eye: Jungle cock
Head: Red with black band

Notes: A regal streamer with a distinct lateral line thanks to the dark centred badger hackle. The red body, throat and tail point towards its use as a wounded smelt imitation capable of moving the laziest of the big land locked salmon in the Rangeley region lakes.

Darren, very nice job, especially the head. I like the tapered sleek look. Also, anything w/golden badger is a fish killer.

The colors, profile, sleek look, just blew me away. That golden badger is gorgeous, and perfect for this streamer. Darren you outdid yourself on this one!

… 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.
