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.
