#253 Adirondack - Alan Petrucci


Tied by: Alan Petrucci
Originated by: Alan Petrucci

Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 6xl
Thread: White
Tag: Flat silver Mylar tinsel
Body: Lemon yellow floss / silk
Rib: Flat silver Mylar tinsel
Belly: White bucktail
Wing: Two yellow hackles flanked by brown hackles tied in slightly shorter
Shoulder: Hen dyed crayfish orange

Notes: Tied as a tribute to this wonderful region. The Adirondack mountains are located in north eastern New York state and contain about 120 summits and thousands of streams, creeks and rivers. It would take a lifetime to explore all the fishing the area has to offer. Lake Placid and the Au Sable river lie within the boundaries of the park and there is a dedicated 6.5 mile stretch of the west branch designated a bait-free catch and release water.

Alan, great work. Love the name, and explanation of the area. I got to visit Lake Placid and that area in the 1980's. That is where I got to see the first fly angler in action. I decided right then and there it was something I had to do, eventually. Anyway, the fly is wonderful. Love it.

Nice work Alan, as usual. The game of colors must be irresistible not only to a fish... Petr

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.
