This Carrie Stevens Rangeley style streamer is popular on the Rapid River where sizable Brook Trout can still be found. The blending of the green and gray make for a very interesting look that often entice brookies. This fly can be tied in many sizes but the 9x and 7x Partridge Heritage Streamer hooks are perfect.
