Notes: Jim developed his Blue Magic streamer int he spring of 1994. He considers the pattern to be his best attractor pattern. The belly may be tied with either bucktail or marabou. This fly has been most productive in the fall months, tied in smaller sizes for brook trout.
Jim Warner – My fly-tying has been listed in several books: Dick Stewart’s Trolling Flies for Trout & Salmon; Dick Surette’s Trout and Salmon Fly Index; Don Wilson’s Smelt Fly Dressings; Mike Martinek’s Streamer Fly Patterns for Trolling & Casting 1 & 2; many periodicals such as On The Water, UFT, etc; and many newspaper articles…. too many to describe.
