Notes: Tied as a tribute to this wonderful region. The Adirondack mountains are located in north eastern New York state and contain about 120 summits and thousands of streams, creeks and rivers. It would take a lifetime to explore all the fishing the area has to offer. Lake Placid and the Au Sable river lie within the boundaries of the park and there is a dedicated 6.5 mile stretch of the west branch designated a bait-free catch and release water.

Alan PetrucciAlan Petrucci – I have fished streamers ever since the first vacation we took to Mooselookmeguntic Lake in Rangeley Maine back in the mid 70′s. I love their style and their histories. As a fly tyer thats only happened a few years ago.

    Nice work Alan, as usual. The game of colors must be irresistible not only to a fish… Petr

    Alan, great work. Love the name, and explanation of the area. I got to visit Lake Placid and that area in the 1980’s. That is where I got to see the first fly angler in action. I decided right then and there it was something I had to do, eventually. Anyway, the fly is wonderful. Love it.
