Time for another Throw Back Thursday fly…the Carrie Stevens Pink Beauty Streamer.
Some of you may have seen the Carrie Stevens Pink Beauty Streamer before, but this is the first time as a TBT fly.
There is a certain beauty about Carrie Stevens streamers. The sleekness of lines, combination of colors…I’ve only tied two of them, but I think I’ll have to give some more a try.
Here is an entry from the Carrie Stevens Green Drake Streamer TBT post a few weeks ago to provide a little history:
“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.”
Hope you enjoy the Carrie Stevens Pink Beauty Streamer!
Gretchen and I love ALL of the Carrie Stevens fly patterns. She was a real artist and you did a great job of tying her pattern. Love you site. Take care & …
