Hook: Gaelic Supreme Mike Martinek Rangeley Streamer 8xl #1
Thread: 6/0 White

Notes: The inspiration for the streamer came with a delivery of materials from my good friend Don Ordes. In the package was an assortment of CDL hackles that I fell in love with right away. I used the badger hackle inside of the CDL to give it a bit stronger lateral line, and the CDL gives the wing spectacular mottling.
