Boogie Man Streamer

I love Kelly Galloup’s fly pattern designs, but find them to be a bit repetitive at times. Perhaps it’s just the names I’m drawn to, but no doubt they can be quite effective in bring large tout to hand. I might add a reverse rib of copper wire into these patterns for some added durability as they aren’t really quick patterns to tie. I’m not sure of the tyer in the video, but I believe they are from southern Alberta and will add credit when I can pin down a name.

  1. As what some would call an old guy I have over the years of fishing big and nasty waters I have found almost without fail, through water trials, that when working a pattern for a more snag free presentation using dumbell eyes on the same side as the hook eye bends is a bad idea. It neutralizes the offset and interfears with the hook gap that I am trying to use to my advantage. Fishing from a driftboat and chucking streamers I put that weight on the opposit side as the hook eye bend. It reduces the snag caused breakoffs by 75% or so and the fly always travels barb up. It means I’m fishing longer and rerigging less at anchor. A win, win deal.
