Hope you enjoy the two streamers I tied this weekend. The first is Lew Oatman's Golden Shiner. It is tied on a mustad 3665A size 2 hook. I plan on tying all seventeen Oatman patterns listed in "Streamer Fly Tying and Fishing" by Bates. I have tied some of these before but never all of them . the second is the "Harlequin" streamer . It is tied on a Daiichi 2220 size six. There are some flaws with both but overall I am happy with how they turned out. My camera is not very good and so I apologize for the crummy photo. Your critiques are welcome .

Hi Guys
thanks for the kind words. I hope to have the next fly up in the next few days.

First, Mike B got that Yo down well. Good to hear from you as well

Dustin , I have lurked here for such a long time that I keep hoping to see something new from you . Please post. I wish I were as young and talented as you are !!

Joe , camera does suck , Hope to have a new one soon but I am glad you took the time to look. Nova Scotia is a place I have only been to once but it is truly beautifull . Your spey fly is as well !!!! show me more !!!!

Gert, not sure why they keep telling me to run when I see you, after all you seem so nice.thanks for the kind words

Dave , I appreciate your words and the really nice wets you have posted . I look forward to more !!!

CD I can't think of a more knowledgable or better streamer guy. I have long been an admirer. In fact you are the reason I choose to do this series,. I saw the three Oatman's you have tied and posted. The Oatman photo and certificate are really cool pieces of history. Hope to learn more from you

Lee, I ave admired your MOM's for a long time as well. Mike Boyer turned me on to them and I just love em !!. I haven't tied any of those in a few years now but will be shortly.


Basically . I have come out of the extreme ( lurkers ) slackers club and I look forward to sharing flies, materials and ideas with you all


My sincere thanks again
Best Glenn

Glenn - I'm flattered. blush.gif Glad I could provide inspiration! Not sure where you are, (I thought NJ somewhere). If you can make it to the Pequest State Hatchery Open House on Sunday, I'll be tying there from 10AM to 1 PM. We can talk Oatman.... :-)

glenn,

you have a good eye for proportions

here are a couple of photos of an qriginal harliquin tyed by brian gulline. it is part of the Dettte Family fly index cards. this card system held flies, materials and notes from many. it was their computer system back then.

btw the wing is goose or swan

enjoy the photos

Hi Guys
thanks again for the kind words

Teddy
those photos are so cool !!! The wing on mine is Dyed Black peacock wing , Hyacynth Macaw , and white Turkey . had actually married a goose wing but the Macaw looked closer to the book photo so I went with that. You got any photos of the Canadian Trout Fin or an original trout fin streamer? I want to tie a series of married wing flies . I have tied a mickey finn and plan on tying the Binns streamer , parmacheene beau, parmacheene belle all agian shown in Bates book.


Chris, unfortunately we are baby sitting my grandaughters down the shore this weekend. I am in New Jersey up by the meadowlands . I will join the streamer list later today probably should have a long time ago and I meant it when I said you are to blame for this madness !!!!!


Thanks again
Best Glenn

Yo Teddie
perfect, thanks for the help. these will do nicely when I do tie them. Great reference for proportions and colors. Even the tinsels are vivid . I like how he sert the wing low on the Parmacheenee Belle

thanks again
Glenn

PS the trout fin clearly shows the canadian preference for red

Glenn, Very cool work, that will be a great group of flies when you're done. Bring em out next year to Albany.

Thanks for sharing those cards Ted, your comment, it was their computer system is interesting ... and we wonder why there were so many variations of patterns.

Here's a question to ponder, in 25 - 50 years what will the tyers looking back say about the flies we tied, of course they will laugh at our computers.
