Notes: As with many of Duane Vigue’s patterns, there is always at least one material that can be hard to find stocked on the shelf, and might require a custom dye job. Thankfully Dwayne is well versed in dying feathers and was able to get a batch of the silver pheasant feathers dyed for the streamer. When the streamer gets wet, the red tones down and darkens, giving an impression more akin to an injured baitfish than a red-hot iron. The streamer has been quite successful with the brook trout on the lookout for easy prey.
Dwayne Miller – I was born and presently reside on Prince Edward Island, Canada. I’ve been chasing trout around PEI since the age of 5 and found out about flyrods at 12. I continued to fish both for a few more years but in 1988 that all changed as my good friend and mentor, Scott Mitchell turned me onto chasing Atlantic salmon with the flyrod. This was a life changing moment, and I’ve been on a mad whirl’wind ride chasing these magnificent fish ever since.
