Notes: We are back at it again for 2013. In 2012 the focus of the streamers was on Featherwings, but in 2013 we shift the focus to hairwing streamers. Bob gets to kick things off with his interpretation of the Bauman Bucktail.
This is a beautiful little streamer that has seen tons of action over the years. The colors are a great match for little rainbow smelts or brook trout fingerlings. The streamer has the option of being tied with a floss body or tinsel body, a nice option to have depending on conditions. The pattern was designed by Mr. Arthur Bartleet of Presque Island, Maine and named for Mr. Art Bauman of the Weber Tackle Company.
Bob Petti – Bob Petti is a fly fisherman and fly tyer from the Catskill Mountain region of New York. Like so many other fly tyers, he started his journey innocently. “All I wanted was the ability to tie the Royal Wulff, Elk Hair Caddis, Adams, and Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear. I didn’t have much money and it wasn’t easy to buy flies at the time. Heck I couldn’t even afford a decent pair of waders back then, so I thought a small investment in tying flies would pay off in the long run.” A couple decades later his one-shoe-box hobby has grown to a full blown identity.
