Cool shit Pimp ! I haven't tied any of those guys for quite a while. It's getting to be that time. Fall is not far off.

Once again I starting the Carrie Stevens streamers. Going in A-Z order, today brought: All Orange, Allies Delight, Allies Favorite, Artula, and Austies Special. Used her technique of preassembling wings before tying in where applicable. Recipes obtained from her streamer book...
