#33-2013 Anna Streamer - Loretta Parent #33-2013 Anna Streamer - Loretta Parent


Tied by: Loretta Parent
Originated by: Loretta Parent

Hook: Partridge CS15 #2
Thread: Black
Tip: Gold oval tinsel, narrow
Tag: Red floss
Tail: Golden pheasant crest sweeping upward
Butt: Black ostrich herl
Body: Purple floss
Rib: Gold oval tinsel crossed
Throat: White bucktail tied short
Wing: White bucktail under orange bucktail under peacock herl
Shoulder: Peacock breast
Head: Black

Notes: The inspiration for the streamer comes from a salmon fly Loretta designed in 2011 to honour the memory of her mother Anna. It is a Fall pattern which includes Anna's favorite colors purple and orange. Loretta's mother had always been interested in knowing if the fish she had caught had been released. The original salmon fly featured a golden pheasant tippet in the wing with a light purple collar. It has a Golden Phesant Tippet for the wing and a light purple collar. Loretta mixes in some pearl krystal flash with the wing. She opted for white bucktail on the streamer inplace ofthe flash as she felt it more appropriate and changed out the purple collar for a shoulder using peacock breast feathers. A beautiful tribute for a mother.

Thank you Barry. I had been giving this streamer a lot of thought while tying the other submissions for this project. It is the only one one I have tied yet so I will have to make another one for a keepsake.

Loretta, I really like the Shoulder/Wing composition. I actually like it better than the Salmon Fly. Make sure you tie one for yourself.

… 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.
