Notes: This is a conversion of the classic wet fly as described in Ray Bergman’s “Trout”. The Golden Demon has some of the deepest roots of any flies with popularity branching to both North American coasts, Europe and Australia during the early 20th century via the likes of the infamous Zane Grey. The pattern features an earthy mix of brown, black, orange and a flashy vein of gold. In the tradition of the original wet fly, we hope to see this streamer also take on the like of Atlantic salmon, brook trout, steelhead and coastal cutthroat who have storied the pattern’s past.

Dave Lomasney – I was born and raised a New Englander, were I love to fly fish, hunt, hike and most of all tie classic streamer and wet flies. I started flyfishing and tying about thirty years ago when I bought a Universal Fly Tying Kit from the Kittery Trading Post here in Maine. Little did I know were it would take me. Simple bucktails at first, Mickey Fin, Blacknose Dace, and Wardens Worry. It was with that first Wardens Worry that I caught my first trout with a fly.
