#37-2013 Miss Sharon - Steve Labrecque #37-2013 Miss Sharon - Steve Labrecque


Tied by: Steve Labrecque
Originated by: Arthur Libby
Source: Tandem Streamers by Donald A. Wilson, - Pg. 105

Hook: Tandem rig (#4 Mustad 3399 hook up front, #4 rear hook being connected with wire cable)
Thread: Red
Body: Red thread (floss used on single)
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Wing: Sparse red bucktail under white bucktail under orange bucktail under black bucktail
Head: Red
Eye: White with black pupil painted

Notes: The pattern was originated by Arthur Libby and tied commercially by Bob Bibeau. Miss Sharon, like many of the other streamer Bob Bibeau tied, should be built quite sparse. The pattern was designed to be fished in Sebago Lake for the landlocked salmon and trout that call the waters home. The pattern has been a productive fly tied in both tandem and single hook configurations, particularly during ice out, when fish are actively feeding on smelt. The black bucktail in the wing is on occasion replaced or enhanced with a few strands of peacock herl and early examples of the pattern were tied with jungle cock nail, but the accoutrement was later discarded.

Steve, I LOVE IT. This is a tremendous effort here. It is a real winner, if you ask me.

Nice fly,i like tandems,they don`t give the fish as much "leverage" as long shank hooks...

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.
