    I think a lot of the big trout streamers would not be turned down by pike or muskies or even bass if they were in the vacinity of the moving fly.
    I think this thread is gonna develop nicely.
    I'm mostly interested in trout/steelhead streamers, however, all streamers are welcome in my opinion, both on the shorter and much longer end of the BIG scale!

    I had my phone to take some pictures of the streamers that I brought home.
    I fish a lot of streamers so this is what I primarily carry, and no where near all that I have, just what I could fit in two boxes in a fanny pack.

    These are the swap flies I have with me. You might recognize Eunans "mikes red rocket" tylers "something I actually forgot the name" The "black Angus" Nerkas "popsicle" and Watson's "yoda" in no particular order.

    Next: the circus peanuts, woolhead peanut, and another galloup fly in the middle right that I can't remember the name of for the life of me right now.


    That Rounds out the first box, The next are some assorted ones:

    This is just a jumble of them I pulledout for the picture, most of them I tied, a few I didn't, can you figure out which ones? No, serioulsy, I'd like to know. these I primarily have fished a tailwater at night with, nearly all of them have caught fish.


    VooDoo leaches, Eunan posted an SBS a while back.


    Closer look



    my most productive fly This summer... While not trememdously big, it is simple. a hook, Thread, and a three inch piece of zonked pine squirrell.

    The following is an articulated craft fur and marabou creation, I am going to recolor the head with blue, not green:





    Had some good bass hits on these this summer, bottom right was stripped down though, too thick and even held a sink tip up.


    Whats called a "Hot core" I need to put some eyes on it.


    All I got for now,Buying a ton of tying supplies when I get back to springfield, Most of which will be for streamers.

    I need to pick up more ep fiber and craft fur and longer, wider rabbit strips. Need to tie tarpon and pike streamers...

    The Lefty's Deceiver makes for a great trout streamer. One of the best IMO, and there are plenty of other "crossover" streamers too. A good design is a good design.
    One of my other favorites is Jack Gartside's Soft Hackle Streamer. It's very lifelike in the water and is as simple to tie as you can find.

    Lancer - Great looking flies. I would have to say the middle fly was the one you tied? Am I correct? Also The bottom right fly in the second to last picture looks awesome. Is that tied with EP fibers?

    I couldnt agree more. Regardless of the species in mind when the fly was designed, once it hits the water its fair game for anything that comes across it if they like the look of it.

    It was to thick, it got salvaged for the hook. Actually on two flies I posted were not toe by me, save the picture of the swap flies. The bunny leach with chartreuse head and the black and pink in the bottom middle.
