Notes: The Lakewood is named after the famous camp located at Middle Dam on the Lower Richardson. The camp / lodge was originally opened under the name Angler’s Retreat over 150 years ago and is still in operation to this day. The black and olive in the wing blend out to a earthy brown, and Carrie tied the head on this pattern reverse of her usual stripping, having a black band on an orange head.

Michael Decoteau – While growing up in the small coastal town of Belfast, Michael fished the local streams and remote ponds of western Maine with his father. His tying began at an early age, seated behind his father’s Thompson model B, and has now evolved into an occupation.
