Originated by: Ray Bergman
Source: Streamer Fly Tying and Fishing: Bates Pg. 284-285

Notes: This is one of the three squirrel tail streamers originated by Ray Bergman. The streamer should be tied in smaller sizes and kept sparse. This was a popular streamer for fishing the early spring rainbow trout on the Gunnison River in Colorado. In that local, it is incorrectly referred to as the G.J. Streamer, named so after the angler who introduced the pattern received from Mr. Bergman. The streamer is useful for fishing high waters, and can be especially effective in the evening.

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.
