Alan PetrucciAlan Petrucci – I have fished streamers ever since the first vacation we took to Mooselookmeguntic Lake in Rangeley Maine back in the mid 70′s. I love their style and their histories . As a fly tyer thats only happened a few years ago.

    Alan, a fabulous job as usual. I just wanted to commend you on the head. All the streamers here are beautiful, but very few of the tyers have bothered to finish the heads nicely. Yours is an example to others of how it should look. Thanks for the great job!

  2. Great stuff as always Alan. Beauties like this are almost too sweet to fish.

    I love the contrast of the orange body with the subtle color of the rest of the fly. Beautiful
