Notes: This is a beautiful bright orange and black themed pattern destined to be trolled in the deep cold waters of Jasper’s Maligne lake. The speckling present in the Coq de Leon feather breaks up some of the brightness of the orange and gives it some natural looking markings. The trout swimming in Maligne and the other mountain lakes find this streamer hard to pass up.

Alan GrombacherAlan (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.
