Notes: The brown trout who patrol the depths of Alberta’s Obed Lake will find it hard to pass up this hearty pearch mimic. With the bucktail placed between the wing, the pattern stays quite full when wet. The streamer has also been quite productive on waters where perch and walleye co-habitat.
Alan (Alberta Al) Grombacher – Alan started tying flies shortly after his 8th birthday, in fact the day after his Dad came home with his first pair of bifocals. Alan’s Dad set-up his tying vise after dinner that night, and taught Alan to tye. His first flies were brown hackle peacock wet flies and black/grizzly woolyworms. The first woolyworm that he tyed is still in his fly fishing gear. Alan quickly became the fly tyer for his Dad, Dad’s friends, and his buddies, and has been tying now for over 43 years.
