Tied by: Steve Labrecque
Originated by: Arthur Libby
Source: Tandem Streamers by Donald A. Wilson, – Pg. 105
Hook: Tandem rig (#4 Mustad 3399 hook up front, #4 rear hook being connected with wire cable)
Body: Red thread (floss used on single)
Rib: Silver flat tinsel
Wing: Sparse red bucktail under white bucktail under orange bucktail under black bucktail
Eye: White with black pupil painted
Notes: The pattern was originated by Arthur Libby and tied commercially by Bob Bibeau. Miss Sharon, like many of the other streamer Bob Bibeau tied, should be built quite sparse. The pattern was designed to be fished in Sebago Lake for the landlocked salmon and trout that call the waters home. The pattern has been a productive fly tied in both tandem and single hook configurations, particularly during ice out, when fish are actively feeding on smelt. The black bucktail in the wing is on occasion replaced or enhanced with a few strands of peacock herl and early examples of the pattern were tied with jungle cock nail, but the accoutrement was later discarded.
