Today’s Throw Back Thursday fly is the Carrie Stevens Green Drake streamer. I tied this fly for last year’s Expo Poster Plate, but they used my Pink Beauty instead.
Carrie Stevens created her own versions of streamers for Maine’s Rangeley Lakes Region. In July 1924, she landed a 6 pound 13 ounce brook trout, winning 2nd place in the Field & Stream magazine contest. Shortly after that, she began selling her flies.
