Here's one that I'm itching to try out this Fall on some LL Salmon. It's called the Chief Nedebah; developed by the Chief in the Rangeley Lakes region. Unlike Carrie's patterns, where the individual wings are glued and attached on the side of the hook, these wings are attached back-to-back as a pair on the top of the hook; Eastern Streamer style:
Carrie tried to get her wings low on the shank; she thought this was more in keeping with the bait fish that she was trying to imitate with her patterns. Eastern Streamers tyers don't think it matters and it certainly is easier and faster to tie in on the top of the hook.
that gray ghost is beautiful!
by far the best i've seen.
the nedebah is quite a looker as well!
