Golden Darter

The golden darter is my favorite pure streamer pattern for the NE. It imitates the black nosed dace which are so prevelant in NE waters. Also it is very easy to tie which is important to me. Second would have to be the muddler but a pain to tie.

Effective and easy to tie, in no particular order....

Black ghost
Grey ghost
Mickey Finn
Nine Three
Blacknose dace
Supervisor
Wooly bugger

Yeah, there's a Maine landlocked salmon influence with a few of those.

All of those are good. Nine Three and Supervisor are old classic patterns along with Grey and Black Ghost. You can find them on the internet do a search.

Still have night mares about the beast of a rainbow I lost on the Big Delaware 40 years ago on a Grey Ghost. Had my little 6 weight, it about an 8 lb river rainbow that fought like a steelhead. I had no backing and was chasing it down the river as darkness fell. Still remember the parting jump to this day.

Don't forget muddler minnows and simple white and black marabou streamers for trout in small sizes.

Hal's right about using an Internet search. Fly Anglers Online has one version in their 'old flies' archive; 'Forgotten Flies' (Schmookler&Sils) has something slightly different, etc. Perhaps a search of 'rangeley streamers', b'cuz you're gonna end up sitting, reading the computer, mesmerized by all the neat historical info you find

Dfix,

Right on, actually I hate to do those type of internet searches, it gets me thinking I need to tie more flies. They are now falling out of my fly wallets and boxes, their is no room left anywheres.

It is a sickness for sure and which I know not the cure after 43 years !

Hal

Why make the binder ? you can always just go get them again when needed from the net. Plus they may be updated.

Actually, I question why I buy fly pattern and fly tying instruction books any more with everything that is available on the net for
FREE.

Thats my .02 cents

I get loads of great info from the net. However, the main probem with relying on the net is that things change constantly and you may not be able to find the same thing in the same place from one day to the next. Even when you put a page in your "favorites" it may not be there the next time you look for it. One option is to save the pages that you really like onto your hard drive -- click "File", "save as" and save the page as an htm or html document in a folder that you will remember. An added bonus is that you can then access those pages offline so you don't tie up your phone line or use up time on your account (if those things matter to you).
