Notes: George Faulkner and Mike drove trucks together for a number of years in Oregon. George was a recent retiree and had bought an RV with plans to begin a relaxing lifestyle of traveling the highways with his lady friend. Unfortunately the dream was cut short by a stroke shortly after his retirement. Mike thought it fitting to dedicate this streamer to his friend George. He choose the classic looking Mustad-Chestertown hook with a silk gut eye and a unique Guinea fowl feather, speckled not spotted, for the shoulder of the streamer.

Mike Boyer Mike Boyer – I started tying flies for Trout in the early 1960’s. My folks bought me a little boxed fly tying kit from the local sporting goods store that included a Thompson vise, some hackles and various body and winging materials. A couple of my father’s friends taught me how to cast a fly, and the obsession with flies and fly fishing began.
