Default Carrie Stevens Rangeley Style Streamer Swap

This is a kinda specialized swap in that not many folks tie these flies.
But, with the current Streamers365 project, my interest has peaked and i'm keen to give them ago.
For those that were in on the Big Streamer For Trout swap last fall, Pocono tied a nice brookie fin streamer similar to the Rangeley style streamers.

I understand there might not be many who want to have a crack at this, but if you're interested a bit, and stuck for inspiration, head on over to streamers365 and check out some of the patterns that have been posted so far.

With over 40 already, and the final number to be 365, theres tons of potential patterns, and certainly enough for a swap.

As an added incentive to check it out, the fly featured today is by our very own Gary Tanner (gt05254)

Those are pretty cool. s going to tie some this summer I think just because they are neat, but I'd feel bad fishing something like that, but it would be pretty cool to catch a fish on one.

Thanks for the boost, Eunan, your check is in the mail!

In all seriousness, the eventual sales, on ebay, of the flies in the 365 thingy will benefit several good outfits. One that I especially appreciate is the Rangeley Outdoor Heritage Museum in Maine.

Great idea Eunan, these are beautiful patterns and I know we have a bunch of folks on here that tie them. I'll start a new swap thread for this one and see if we can get a bunch of folks signed up.

Beautiful fly, Gary. I have a lot of appreciation for the feather wing streamer after tying the ole Hornberg for a recent swap. Now it's a pretty basic fly and with some room for error, but it gave me a couple fits. Matching up all those feathers, keeping them in line and tying them in flat...man!

I'm such a glutton for punishment...I'll keep an eye open for the swap.
