Streamer Pattern!

This time of the year is Streamer Time!
I first tied and tested this pattern on the North Platte (Trappers Route Area) in 1977 when I was working in Casper Wyo. Just in case you are wondering it still worked in 2010. I normally fish this pattern with a floating line and without any weight incorporated into the fly. If I want to fish it deeper I add split shot 12” to 18” in front of the fly.
