Cameron has created a series of original designs based on and inspired by the works of Carrie Stevens. The Antique and Copper has been created to mimic the colors of baitfish that can be found in and around the Great Lakes where Cameron often chooses to wet a line. The streamers have also found success swimming the waters of the Ottawa river and the historical Rideau river.
Cameron Sangster – I was 9 years old and my grandfather was an avid Atlantic salmon and brook trout fly fisherman. He would take yearly trips to the Gaspe region of Quebec to fish the Matapedia and other rivers. I was introduced to fly fishing by him and my father at a private fishing club they belonged to. One time before one of his salmon trips my grandfather placed some used salmon flies on the table. He asked me to tie them as close as possible to the original. From then on, after taking a few lessons, I have been tying off and on for 35 yrs.
