Notes: Within the Cains River series is a sub series of streamers called demons. The Cains River Demons were adapted from steelhead flies of the same name, popularized in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The Black Demon was created as a variation of the Golden Demon (steelhead) fly in 1937 in response to a demand for black flies for use on the Klamath River in California.

Loretta Parent Loretta Parent -I have been tying flys for 3 years now and have enjoyed learning everything I can about the art of fly tying. I am very passionate about this pastime and love to pass on and share what I know to anyone that is interested. I started a fly fishing club for women last year called “Fly Girls of New Brunswick” and hope to start a fly tying club as well. My favourite place to fish is anywhere on the Miramichi drainage system.
