Notes: It’s hard to surmise where the name for the pattern could have originated as Carrie didn’t provide much in the way of notes on many of her creations. But if I were to go out on a limb, I would guess that the wing color may play a role in it. The All Orange is one of the first Carrie Stevens patterns I started tying when I began my love affair with the long hook. It is a simple streamer, but one that you can use to hone your streamer tying skills on.
