Notes: Aside from the 12 feather wing streamers in David Klausmeyer’s Tying Classic Freshwater Streamers, it is difficult to find information, let along images of Gray Wolf’s streamers. Luckily in this case, the pattern has been preserved for generations of streamer aficionado’s to come. This is the first of several Gray Wolf streamers tied by Eunan for the project.
Eunan Hendron – I’ve been tying flies since I was about 10 or 11, a direct progression from fishing stillwater team competitions with my father as a young boy. I began tying classic flies (wet, streamer and atlantic salmon) towards the end of 2011, having never tied them before. A pretty steep learning curve, not for the feint of heart, but many thanks are due to the members of various forums who gave me tips and constructive criticism to aid my progression.
