The Big Streamer Giveaway!



As in, I'm giving away 6 big streamers. I'll give away two of the Zoo Cougars I tied this weekend, two bunny leeches, and two of the lightweight shiner imitations I tie.  Big food for big fish, and if you think they are too big for your favorite stream, you are probably wrong. Leave a comment below and I'll do the drawing on Sunday April 24.  Entries are due by 7 PM Sunday.

Below are the shiner imitations- I've perfected this tie now, but didn't have time to do fresh pics.  The one at center right is representative of what's in the drawing.  They're lightweight, cast a mile, with a good outline that looks like the actual muscle pattern on a baitfish.  I think you'll like these.
  Again I'll throw in the disclaimer- I'm not a pro tyer, but I do catch fish on these.  The steelhead and browns hammered these shiner patterns last fall, with the Cougar being a close second.  So leave a comment to enter.  I'll get Lorin the Drawing Girl to do the honors.

  1. i'm always amazed at the size of flies you can toss in a small water and get the big'uns you didn't think were there...any how, you tie some really fantastic patterns. I've enjoyed looking at them. Thanks for the opportunity to maybe fish a few on you. ;-)

  2. Anything specific in the comment?
    Can I just say "mmmm...zoo cougars!" and be entered?
    What about saying "Yippee!" - does that get me in.
    If not, will "Pick me! Pick me!" suffice?

    Pick me! Pick me!

  15. @brooktroutfishingguide- if you win I'll custom tie some a little smaller for those brookies. @everyone else- I'm so pleased with the response to this giveaway that I'm going to double your odds and give away two sets instead of one. Thank you all for reading and following.
