Larry Leight Streamers



Larry has been tying Rangeley style streamers for resale on Ebay for number of years, mostly tying classics from pioneers and regional standards. Recently, Larry has started offering a selection of his own creations, some based on themes of colour, variations on classics and some imaginative originals.

The Rangeley Rainbow was a streamer that was born in the creation of 5 other streamers. Larry had been tying these streamers in distinct colour combinations which led to the thought of tying a streamer with red, orange, yellow, green blue, indigo and violet represented.

The five streamers that led to the multi-toned streamer include the Winter's Return, Indian Summer, Purple and Blue (aka the Lavender Blue Dilly), Regal Red and the Sky Blue Pink. The series of streamers all share similar construction with Golden pheasant crests used in the throat and many in the underwing, a nod to Carrie Stevens' Gray Ghost.

The Mongaup is a streamer Larry named after a tributary off of the Delaware in Sullivan County, N.Y. He suggests using the streamer during the late spring while the sowbellies and alewives are making their presence known in the rivers. The Butternut, is named for Butternut Creek in Otsego N.Y. The R.J. Browne was created with brown trout in mind and has been successful in taking some greedy carnivorous hawgs. Larry fishes the R.J. Browne and Butternut with the most success during the daylight hours and finds that The Weir works best under lower light conditions.

The Lady Hornet streamer is as yet untried, but stands as a nod to the Green Hornet created by Ms. Carrie Stevens. While the original pattern doesn't include the Lady Amherst pheasant shoulder, but rather a golden pheasant shoulder, the Complete Sportsman poster fly tied by Marcelo Morales does feature the Amherst feather on the masculine version of the streamer.

Thanks Larry for sharing you collection.

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.
