Throat: Red floss

Notes: This is a pattern near and dear to Loretta as it was the fly which resulted in her netting her very first Atlantic salmon. She had hired a guide while staying at the Miramichi Inn and made the decision to tie on a large 4/0 streamer. The tug on the end of the line turned out to be a rather large 25lb spring hen. A surprised Loretta released the dark, 42 inch long salmon back into the Big Hole pool on the Miramichi river. The Rose of New England was designed by the New Brunswick guide Everett Price in the 1930's and was a popular streamer pattern for Spring salmon fishing.

Thank you Kelly and Jim. These flies I submitted this year took alot of practice as I had not tied the streamer patterns in 10x long before. I think I went through about enough bucktail to tie 10 times as many flies for each fly I tied.

Thank you. I have not used this in the Fall myself as this is a fly used in early Spring when the water is muddy and high. Let me know how you make out.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
