Notes: The Winnipesaukee Queen was one of the patterns Jim had submitted to be published in Trolling Flies for Trout and Salmon. This pattern as well as Dick’s Special were created by Dick Fozie of Alton Bay. Jim discovered the patterns listed in a ‘New Hampshire Profiles Magazine‘ in the early 1960’s but found that the Queen was not a productive pattern.

Jim WarnerJim 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.

  1. Jim I wasn’t aware of this fly until this morning when this post went up. I took a ride up to my camp and was warming up and opened a copy of “Trolling flies for Tout & Salmon” and there was the pattern. I must have missed it the other hundred times I’ve read that book. It looks like a great dark day fly and I’ll give it a try.
