I like, I like, I like! That's just how I would tie streamers -- if I were a better streamer tier! clapping.gif

This is a 'welltied' and 'proportioned' STREAMER !

nice in all his aspects ! (even If I must be picky...I had still liked a bit more collar set to the 'rear')...

Anyway GREAT fly (streamer)

Thanks for 'posting' Your work !

smile.gif This is an absolutely superb tie! Gerald prompts a subject that has always been in the back of my mind to broach to the Streamer group of tyers. The front hackle tied this way was deliberately done as a type? of style in the East? Why did they tie it this way? Did it work better in fast water tied this style? I think this could be very enlightning to some of us. I for one, would probably tie it as a beard. What do others think? Any of you old timers have some input?

Lovely tying smile.gif Is the head hackle a generic hackle or a regular "large" hackle out of a veniards packet?
