Notes: Lauren’s Favorite is a classic pink pattern. Every flybook should carry a pink streamer pattern. When trout queue in on pink, nothing is better. This pattern is tyed with “girly” pink not “hot” pink. Pink streamers work very well in the mountain lake region. Al’s friend Wally Lutz clued him into the importance of pink in streamers years ago, and this pattern is a result of his recommendations.

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.
