From the UFT 'Roundtable' magazine, circa 1970. No claims to its accuracy on the list of patterns. No reference(s) given.

Thanks, Chris. Quite the interesting page.

And great idea, Joe. I haven't tied a Stevens pattern for awhile.

Sounds like a good idea to me and a fitting tribute to CS. Who else is in?

I'm in.

I've never tied streamer in her style or that type of style. I'm assuming 42 days is Aug 3.

This is going to be cool. I hope there is a big turnout.

Now to find a pattern..........

Sounds like a good idea and a good tribute. It would be nice if we all could have a different pattern, hate to see 20 all the same pattern. Can I suggest that if your in, to state the pattern you want to tie to try to avoid doubles not that its a big deal if there are. I guess I'll go for "Doctor White". If there's no reason why you can't tie more then one I'll do the Demon also unless somebody else wants it.

Also, FYI for those who want a closer connection to Carrie:

Hey Chris, Was the Hammerhead attributed to CS or was it someone else's pattern that she tied?
I'm in .. if the HH is a CS fly then I'll tie it otherwise the Golden Witch.

The Hilyard's in their book give her credit for it.

Royce,

Hammerhead is a Carrie pattern. The UFT 'In Memoriam' I believe was lifted driectly from the Carrie Stevens Day pamphlet given out at Rangeley on that day in 1970. Not a complete list, as far as I know.

I'll sign up for a 'Dazzlar'.

I'd do it too.

Here is a link to some of the patterns off of the poster for inspiration.
