Notes: The Winnipesaukee Queen was one of the patterns Jim had submitted to be published in Trolling Flies for Trout and Salmon. This pattern as well as Dick's Special were created by Dick Fozie of Alton Bay. Jim discovered the patterns listed in a 'New Hampshire Profiles Magazine' in the early 1960's but found that the Queen was not a productive pattern.

Looks like a beautiful pattern to me. I bet it would be productive for bass.

Jim I wasn't aware of this fly until this morning when this post went up. I took a ride up to my camp and was warming up and opened a copy of "Trolling flies for Tout & Salmon" and there was the pattern. I must have missed it the other hundred times I've read that book. It looks like a great dark day fly and I'll give it a try.

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.
