Mollidgewock Brook

Mollidgewock Brook created and tied by Scott Biron

This streamer pattern is on a Partridge Heritage Streamer Hook using some specially dyed Ewing burnt orange streamer feathers. Named after a feeder brook to the Androscoggin River in the 13 Mile Woods area of Errol, NH. The Androscoggin River is a historic river that holds Brook, Rainbow, Brown Trout and Landlock Salmon. If one is lucky they can get one of each in one day resulting in an “Andro Home Run”.
