Stupid Easy Streamer

Curtis Fry- July 2021

Mlike really simple flies. I also like to tie complicated flies. This falls into the simple category. Stupid Simple. Anyway, I needed a simple streamer pattern that would keel properly in the water without going too deep and without floating (as do many over-dressed streamers). This pattern uses a small number of materials and has few steps to tie it. I've fished it in lakes and rivers with very good success over the past year or so. This is the kind of fly you can tie up a bunch in various color schemes to match your local baitfish and have time leftover to actually go fish them. Enjoy!
