Notes: The Beige Grimard was commissioned in 2009 by Mr. Alain Grimard. Every summer, the Grimard Family leaves their home in Canada to travel south to their camp in beautiful Vermont. Mr. Grimard commissioned this special streamer to be a remembrance of their 2009 fishing adventure. Ready to entice the local brook trout, this streamer proved to be a success and was ordered again for subsequent trips south. When wet, this streamer holds a thin profile resembling the shape and color of local baitfish.

David MacDavid Mac – David has been tying flies since 1964 and as it does many tyers addicted to the vise, brought him countless hours of enjoyment. As a young guest at the United Fly Tyers meetings in Boston, MA, David was introduced to streamers by many of the great tyers of the day. In the 1970’s he spent a decade providing streamers to many of the finest Maine fly shops and camps.
