David MacDavid Mac – I have been tying flies since 1964 and it has brought me, countless hours of enjoyment. As a young guest at the United Fly Tyers meetings in Boston, MA I was introduced to Streamers by many of the Great Tyers. In the 1970′s I spent a decade providing streamers to many of the best Maine Fly Shops and Camps.

  2. Such a fine piece of work, it almost seems a shame to dunk it.

    a very fishy pattern indeed, the all white rear two thirds really draws some attention to the green floss
