Notes: The Primary Attraction is one of several from a series of “Primary” flies designed by Ken in 2011. All of the streamers in the series use a red, yellow and blue color scheme, drawing on past creations such as the Footer’s Special and Guide’s Special. The red grizzly makes for nice parr marking on the side of the streamer and backed by the yellow provides a bright target for predators.

Ken Craigue, Jr – Ken grew up near the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee in Melvin Village, NH. As a young boy he fished the big lake and the lakes region. At ten years old, in 1972, Ken discovered fly tying and was immediately hooked.
