Tandem Streamers

January 16, 2012

 

I want to introduce you to the tandem trolling streamers that are stocked in the store.  My tandems are tied by Ken Grimes of  Fishing Favorite Flies.  Ken has been tying since  1962 and for our shop since the early 1980′s.  I have to tell you, I am a tough guy to satisfy when it comes quality, I like to sell good flies.  Ken’s streamers pass all the  tests.  They are well tied and catch fish for my customers.  What more can I say?  Give me a call or e-mail if you would like to order some in time for ice-out.

John,
Ken ties the pattern for my shop but the design is by Fern Bosse of the Norway area.You can put my link on your site for those seeking info about happenings in the Rangeley area.

I have been very successful on Lake Winnepesaukee fishing early season salmon with the Sneeka pattern. I cannot find this fly anywhere, the one I use has “Streamer Flies by Gray Wolf” on the streamer card along with the fly.

Are you familiar with this brand, all the ones I use have a true jungle cock eye.

I plan on visiting the Rangeley Region Sport Shop and Rangeley Museum containing the Carey Stevens classic fly patterns she tied for the “sports” who wanted that magic edge we all look for.

Thank you.

Rick

We carry the Sneeka in both casting and tandem flies. Also have it with beads. You’ll love the museum and we look forward to having you stop by the shop. To our knowledge, Grey Wolf is no longer tying.
