Nathanael getting a taste of the expanded streamer lineup from Angler’s Choice Flies
With the big water still around there has been a bunch of demand for streamer flies, the right streamer flies.
We had blown out our selection of premium flies from our mate Mike Schmidt at Angler’s Choice Flies. For those of you who noticed my wife Rabecca hooking 3 fish over the 24” mark in a week, landing 2, all came on Mike’s flies.
But a move to Florida and some other major changes had the big fella a bit behind. But now settled into full time fly tying Mike is getting up to speed.We had been working up since spring a broader selection of the always popular Double Deceivers in some of the colors which have been working for our streamer guides in their own patterns.
Coming into the lineup in both 6” & 8” are Olive/White; Chartreuse and White; all yellow (Banana); Fire Tiger and Ginger (Brown/Ginger), alongside the ever popular Olive/Yellow and Cotton Candy. The Double Deceiver is all about the action, whether you are new to the streamer game (6”) or an old hand (8”).
The Viking Midge, on which Becca landed her 26” fish below, comes in White, Yellow and Tan. This fly has a great balance between length, weight to cast and its sink rate. Killer for high water.
We also have some hot new colors in stock in Tommy Lynch’s Drunk a Disorderly, which has been rocking them on Norfork and the shallower bankson the White.
