Notes: The Bobby is a pattern tied in the typical Bob Bibeau style, tandem, colourful and sparsely dressed. The pattern was named for Bob and Frances’ son Bob Jr. Back in the 1980’s Steve had a gig netting smelts in the springtime and Bob Bibeau was among his customer base. The fly is a great pattern to troll during the darker days on Lake Sebago.
Steve Labrecque – Steve was born in the 50’s and has been tying streamers for over 35 years. He has one son and four grandchildren to pass on his fishing passion to. He has specialized in tandem streamers for many of those years but enjoys tying on long shank hooks as well. Steve was raised near the water and he grew up in the Sebago Lake area. Both his father and grandfather had fishing camps on the lake, and fishing and streamers run deep in his blood.
