Sandborne Streamer

This is a pattern designed by Fred Sanborn of Norway Maine. Can be tied both ways as shown in these photos. Many anglers are committed to using this pattern in the fall to catch big fish. I have friends that say when this fly is on in the fall look out as it can produce a brook trout on every cast.
